In mammals, light entrainment of the circadian clock, located in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN), requires retinal input. Traditional rod and cone photoreceptors, however, are not required. Instead, the SCN‐projecting retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) function as autonomous photoreceptors and exhibit light responses independent of rod‐ and cone‐driven input. Using whole‐cell patch‐clamp recording techniques, we have investigated the morphological and electrophysiological properties of this unique… Expand
