Intracellular recordings from luminosity-type horizontal cells of the turtle retina were used to analyze the effects of steady and flickering background illumination on the size of their receptive fields. Both types of background illumination reduce the size of the receptive field to about the same extent. The reduction seems largely due an increase in the… CONTINUE READING
