    Sensitivity to image recurrence across eye-movement-like image transitions through local serial inhibition in the retina

    Vidhyasankar Krishnamoorthy et al.
    The encoding of visual images by certain retinal ganglion cells is fundamentally altered in the context of eye-movement-like image transitions; the transitions trigger inhibitory interactions, which make these cells particularly sensitive to recurring images.

    Formation of retinal direction-selective circuitry initiated by starburst amacrine cell homotypic contact

    Thomas A Ray et al.
    Selective synapse formation in a retinal motion-sensitive circuit is orchestrated by starburst amacrine cells, which use homotypic interactions to initiate formation of a dendritic scaffold that recruits projections from circuit partners.

    Receptive field center-surround interactions mediate context-dependent spatial contrast encoding in the retina

    Maxwell H Turner et al.
    In the retina, the receptive field surround preserves the spatial contrast sensitivity of the center in the face of naturalistic changes in local luminance.

    Silicone oil-induced ocular hypertension and glaucomatous neurodegeneration in mouse

    Jie Zhang et al.
    An effective and reversible mouse glaucoma model that replicates the secondary glaucoma in human patients caused by silicone oil after retina surgeries presents significant neurodegeneration, and is suitable for neuroprotectants selection.

    Regulation of retinal axon growth by secreted Vax1 homeodomain protein

    Namsuk Kim et al.
    Secreted Vax1 homeodomain protein supports the development of optic chiasm by directly acting at the retinal ganglion cell axon.

    A subset of ipRGCs regulates both maturation of the circadian clock and segregation of retinogeniculate projections in mice

    Kylie S Chew et al.
    A single subpopulation of photoreceptors constitutes a shared node in the neural networks that regulate light-dependent maturation of the circadian clock and light-independent refinement of retinal ganglion cell projections to the brain.

    Dendritic mitochondria reach stable positions during circuit development

    Michelle C Faits et al.
    Mitochondria reach stable positions in dendrites during a critical developmental period of high motility.

    Inference of nonlinear receptive field subunits with spike-triggered clustering

    Nishal P Shah et al.
    Nonlinear receptive field subunits in retinal ganglion cells are isolated and characterized by clustering spike-triggered stimuli, and validated on population responses to naturalistic and novel closed loop stimuli.

    A visual circuit uses complementary mechanisms to support transient and sustained pupil constriction

    William Thomas Keenan et al.
    A single class of neurons switches both its sensory detection and neurotransmission mechanisms to support transient or sustained physiological output.

    A simple retinal mechanism contributes to perceptual interactions between rod- and cone-mediated responses in primates

    William N Grimes et al.
    A combination of physiological and perceptual experiments show that the responses of rod photoreceptors inhibit those of cones more than vice versa, and reveal both the site of the retinal interaction and the underlying mechanism.
