The first synaptic relay in the primary visual pathway occurs between terminals of photoreceptors and second-order neurons within the outer plexiform layer of the retina. During development, one of these types of second-order neurons, the type A horizontal cell, differentiates and assumes mature characteristics several days before any other cells ramifying… (More)
