Figure. 9. Rod-cone mixing in horizontal cells of the cat retina. Responses to light stimuli of different intensities were recorded from the cell bodies of A-type and B-type horizontal cells and from the axon terminal of the B-type horizontal cell. Brighter stimuli produce greater amplitudes from the cones, and longer ‘rod after-effects’ from the saturated rod signals. The illustration is adapted from Nelson et al., 1975 (17).
