In the present work, the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) were examined while recording intracellularly from color-opponent bipolar cells in the isolated, superfused carp retina. Bath-applied GABA differentially suppressed light responses of R/G cells, which depolarized and hyperpolarized, respectively, in response to red and green flashes, and G/R cells, which showed the opposite responses. In either R/G or G/R cells, the response driven by input from red cones was invariably… CONTINUE READING
