Retina On-Midget Ganglion Cell

Name: Retina On-Midget Ganglion Cell
Description: Physiologically classified as the main ganglion cells with small receptive fields driven by center-On 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 Off-Midget
Synonym(s): P-Cell, Retina Ganglion Cell On-Midget
