The shape of a neuron's dendritic arbor is critical for its function as it determines the number of inputs the neuron can receive and how those inputs are processed. During development, a neuron initiates primary dendrites that branch to form a simple arbor. Subsequently, growth occurs by a process that combines the extension and retraction of existing dendrites, and the addition of new branches. The loss and addition of the fine terminal branches of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) is dependent… CONTINUE READING
