Amacrine cells (ACs) are third-order interneurons in the retina that mediate antagonistic surround inputs to retinal ganglion cells and motion-related signals in the inner retina. Previous studies have revealed that rod-to-AC signals in dark-adapted retina are mediated by a nonlinear high-gain synaptic pathway. In this study, we investigated how cone signals are transmitted to ACs under dark- and light-adapted conditions. By using the spectral subtraction method, we found that the voltage gain… CONTINUE READING
