Capacitance measurements allow direct studies of exocytosis and endocytosis in single synaptic terminals isolated from bipolar neurons of goldfish retina. Extending the technique to intact bipolar cells, with their more complex morphology, requires information about the cells' electrotonic architecture. To this end, we developed a compartment model of bipolar neurons isolated from goldfish retina and tested the model experimentally. The isolated cells retained morphology similar to that of… CONTINUE READING
