Neuronal activity is accompanied by transmembranous ion fluxes that cause cell volume changes. In whole mounts of the guinea pig retina, application of glutamate resulted in fast swelling of neuronal cell bodies in the ganglion cell layer (GCL) and the inner nuclear layer (INL) (by approximately 40%) and a concomitant decrease of the thickness of glial cell processes in the inner plexiform layer (IPL) (by approximately 40%) that was accompanied by an elongation of the glial cells, by a… CONTINUE READING
