A visual neuron's receptive field is generated by the combination of its unique pattern of synaptic inputs and intrinsic membrane properties. These cellular mechanisms underlying the receptive field can be studied efficiently in retinal ganglion cells, in vitro. In this talk, I will describe recent progress in understanding the mechanisms for visual computations and adaptation in retinal circuitry.
