"Cones and horizontal cells are interconnected to adjacent cones and horizontal cells, respectively, with gap junctions. In particular, the horizontal cell gap junctional conductance is modulated by exogenous factors. What roles does this conductance play in the electrically evoked responses of horizontal cells? To address this question, we constructed a computational model consisting of the cone and horizontal cell layer..."
