Nonuniform distribution and spectral tuning of photosensitive retinal ganglion cells of the mouse retina.

Abstract:

Melanopsin-expressing photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (pRGCs) represent a third class of retinal photoreceptor. These cells are intrinsically photosensitive, but also receive inputs from rod and cone photoreceptors, acting as the primary sensory conduit mediating non-image-forming responses to light. Multiple subtypes of pRGC have been described in the mouse retina with characteristic morphologies and functional properties, and which perform distinct physiological roles. Here, we examin...
