Visual processing: When two synaptic strata are better than one

Curr Biol. 2022 Feb 7;32(3):R129-R131. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2021.12.044.


Two pillars of retinal function, horizontal cell feedback to photoreceptors and center-surround antagonistic receptive fields, are linked in a cause-and-effect relationship. New findings extend the horizontal cell signaling repertoire, prompting insight into the circuits necessary for outer retinal visual processing.
