IX.B.2. Retinal Circuitry No APs until ganglion Cells Light Light The cells of the retina are arranged with the photoreceptors on the inside, so that light has to pass all the way through the retina before transduction can occur. After transduction occurs in the photoreceptors, information is passed through the neural circuit of the retina from the photoreceptors to the bipolar cells, and then to the ganglion cells which send their axons through the optic nerve to the brain. Information passing through the retina is modified by the lateral connections provided by horizontal and amacrine cells. Look at Herman grid –we will explain later
