Mammalian retinal circuits are broadly divided into rod and cone pathways, responsible for dark- and light-adapted vision, respectively. The classic rod pathway employs a single type of rod bipolar cell, which synapses with AII amacrine cells. AII amacrine cells then pass the signal to ON and OFF cone bipolar cells, respectively. Alternatively, rod signals may enter cones via gap junctions between rods and cones, and then pass from cones to cone bipolar cells. Thus, this second rod pathway does… CONTINUE READING
