Retina Off-Midget Ganglion Cell

Name: Retina Off-Midget Ganglion Cell
Description: Physiologically classified as the main ganglion cells with small receptive fields driven by center-off input. Matched with morphologically defined cell of extremely small dendritic arborization. As a population forms both a physical mosaic within retina as well as a receptive field mosaic of stimulus space. Both receptive field size and dendritic arborization are distinct from the corresponding On-Midget.
