The link between morphology and physiology for some of the cell types of the macaque monkey retina is reviewed with emphasis on understanding the neural mechanism for spectral opponency in the light response of ganglion cells. An in vitro preparation of the retina is used in which morphologically identified cell types are selectively targeted for intracellular recording and staining under microscopic control. The goal is to trace the physiological signals from the long (L), middle (M) and short… CONTINUE READING
