Fig. 10. The synaptic complex of cone pedicles. A. Schematic drawing of the cone pedicle with the dendrites of horizontal (red), ON cone bipolar (green), and OFF cone bipolar (blue) cells. The desmosome-like junctions are indicated by the black double lines. B. Drawing of the cone pedicle and the precisely laminated expression of glutamate receptors and GABA receptors.
