Retina bipolar cellDistal equivalent dendriteGlutamateFrom photoreceptorThe balance between synaptic (glutamatergic) and non-synaptic conductance indicates that the synapse will not shunt the cell and the conductance ratio serves to maximize incremental gain at the photoreceptor to ON bipolar synapse.(Tian N and Slaughter MM, 1995380 ) Three types of glutamate receptors for 1) cone-activated receptors of HCs; 2) cone-activated receptors of OFF-BPs; and 3) rod-activated receptors found in HCs and BPs (Kim HG and Miller RF, 1993382 ) Response to glutamate in isolated bipolar cells (Attwell D et al, 1987385 ).
