Retina On/Off-Parasol Ganglion Cell

Name: Retina On/Off-Parasol Ganglion Cell
Description: Along with the On/Off-Midget cells, the Parasols form the majority of the Retina Ganglion Cells. Receptive fields and dendritic arborization are both larger than the Midget Cells. Highly sensitive to contrast. The On and Off Cells have slightly different receptive field size as well as a difference in Dendrite location.
Synonym(s): M-Cells, Retina Ganglion Cell On/Off-Parasol
