The structure, physiology, synaptology, and neurochemistry of photoreceptors and second-order (horizontal and bipolar) cells of Xenopus laevis retina is reviewed. Rods represent 53% of the photoreceptors; the majority (97%) are green light-sensitive. Cones belong to large long-wavelength-sensitive (86%), large short-wavelength-sensitive (10%), and miniature ultraviolet wavelength-sensitive (4%) groups. Photoreceptors release glutamate tonically in darkness, hyperpolarize upon light stimulation… CONTINUE READING
