As all visual information is represented in the spatio-temporal dynamics of transmitter release from photoreceptors and the combined postsynaptic responses of second-order neurons, appropriate synaptic transfer functions are fundamental for a meaningful perception of the visual world. The functional contribution of horizontal cells to gain control and organization of bipolar and ganglion cell receptive fields can only be evaluated with an in-depth understanding of signal processing in… CONTINUE READING
