Effects of GABA and glycine applied electrophoretically were examined on bipolar cells in the carp retina. When applied at the outer plexiform layer, GABA produced a small depolarization in on-center cells, but a small hyperpolarization in off-center cells. These effects were concluded to be mediated by photoreceptor cells. When applied at the inner plexiform layer, GABA produced a hyperpolarization in on-center cells but no response in off-center cells. This response was resistant to Co2+ ions… CONTINUE READING
