AII amacrine cells: quantitative reconstruction and morphometric analysis of electrophysiologically identified cells in live rat retinal slices imaged with multi-photon excitation microscopy (Springer, 2016-02)AII amacrine cells have been found in all mammalian retinas examined and play an important role for visual processing under both scotopic and photopic conditions. Whereas ultrastructural investigations have provided a ...Journal article
(Springer, 2017)In chemical synapses, neurotransmitter molecules released from presynaptic vesicles activate populations of postsynaptic receptors that vary in functional properties depending on their subunit composition. Differential ...Journal article
(Elsevier, 2012)Adaptation enables the visual system to operate across a large range of background light intensities. There is evidence that one component of this adaptation is mediated by modulation of gap junctions functioning as ...Journal article
Electrotonic signal processing in AII amacrine cells: compartmental models and passive membrane properties for a gap junction-coupled retinal neuron (Springer, 2018-09)Amacrine cells are critical for processing of visual signals, but little is known about their electrotonic structure and passive membrane properties. AII amacrine cells are multifunctional interneurons in the mammalian ...Journal article
