Abstract

The long-held view that bipolar cells provide the exclusive excitatory drive to the mammalian inner retina has
been challenged: new studies indicate that, instead, at least two cells that lack the dendrites characteristic for
bipolar cells, and therefore resemble amacrine cells, excite inner retinal circuits using glutamate.
