Interactions between rod and cone signals in mudpuppy retinal neurones were investigated by intracellular recording. 2. The mudpuppy retina contains one kind of rod (lambda max = 525 nm) and one kind of cone (lambda max = 572 nm). The responses of receptors can be distinguished on the basis of their spectral sensitivities. 3. Rod and cone responses have different time courses of recovery and absolute sensitivities. Differences between receptor responses can be used to describe inputs to… CONTINUE READING
