Retinal bipolar cells convey light-evoked potentials from photoreceptors to ganglion cells and mediate the initial stages of visual signal processing. They do not fire Na(+)-dependent action potentials (APs) but the Mb1 class of goldfish bipolar cell exhibits Ca(2+)-dependent APs and regenerative potentials that originate in the axon terminal. I have examined the properties of Ca(2+)-dependent APs in isolated bipolar-cell terminals in goldfish retinal slices. All recorded terminals fired… CONTINUE READING
