The mammalian retina is composed of ~80 distinct neuronal cell types. These neurons work in concert to parcel visual information into ~30 different RGC types, each of which transmits a different message about the visual scene to the brain. I will describe ongoing work in my lab to define the functional role of different cell types in the mammalian retina via the combination of large-scale multi-electrode array recordings and chemogenetic manipulation of genetically defined cell types. This combination of approaches is revealing the specialized roles played by different cell types to encode visual scenes for perception and behavior.
