New paper on horizontal cells published

DP85nE6XcAEYpcT

Our new paper in collaboration with the Euler lab has just been published by Current Biology. Camille recorded light-evoked Ca2+ signals in horizontal cell dendrites and showed that they reflect the cone opsin gradient. In contrast to the widespread hypothesis that horizontal cells are globally coupled, chromatic preferences in neighboring dendritic tips vary markedly, indicating that mouse horizontal cells process cone photoreceptor input locally. We contributed help in data analysis and our first ever multicompartment model based on a beautifully reconstructed entire dendritic branch of a horizontal cell.
