AII amacrine cells play a crucial role in retinal signal transmission under scotopic conditions. We have used rat retinal slices to investigate the functional properties of inhibitory glycine receptors on AII cells by recording spontaneous IPSCs (spIPSCs) in whole cells and glycine-evoked responses in outside-out patches. Glycinergic spIPSCs displayed fast kinetics with an average 10-90% rise time of approximately 500 mus, and a decay phase best fitted by a double-exponential function with tau… CONTINUE READING
