Image Credit: Dr. William Grimes. Description: Dendro-somatic synaptic contact between an inhibitory interneuron (magenta) and a retinal ganglion cell (yellow). These synaptic contacts, described in Grimes et al., 2021, convey high-sensitivity visual signals under low light conditions. In the dark, a sustained OFFα ganglion cell transmits a steady train of action potentials down its axon (white arrow). Dim light stimuli activate the interneuron, which inhibits the OFFα soma and interrupts spiking.
