Illumination of the vertebrate retina evokes a transient decrease in extracellular pot:tsstum concentration, [K-l,. in the subretinrtl space. During maintained illumination. [K -1, recovers toward Its dark-adapted level. The mechanisms most likely to contribute to this recovery process wre examined h> using K *-selective microelectrodes to measure [K ‘I0 in the isolated retina of the toad. &i/it nrwi~c~r. Although both diffusion of K’ and changes in the rod membrane volt:qe contribute to the… CONTINUE READING
