Researchers identify previously unknown cell-type in the mouse retina.
Neurons are nerve cells involved in receiving or sending signals. Excitatory and inhibitory neurons in the CNS are distinguished by several features, including morphology, transmitter content, and synapse architecture. Such distinctions are exemplified in the vertebrate retina, with the retina well-mapped, and for the past 100 years scientists placing retinal interneurons squarely into one of two boxes. Now, a study from researchers at University of Washington identifies … Continue reading Researchers identify previously unknown cell-type in the mouse retina.
