Visual information is processed in the retina to a remarkable degree before it is transmitted to higher visual centres. Several types of retinal ganglion cells (the output neurons of the retina) respond preferentially to image motion in a particular direction, and each type of direction-selective ganglion cell (DSGC) is comprised of multiple subtypes with different preferred directions. The direction selectivity of the cells is generated by diverse mechanisms operating within microcircuits that… CONTINUE READING
