Regulating ipRGC spacing

Abstract

In a recent issue of Neuron, Chen et al. (2013) show that apoptosis is required to ensure the even distribution of a class of retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs), which sense luminance both intrinsically and through input from rods and cones. Disrupting apoptosis impairs photoentrainment mediated by rods/cones, but not that mediated by ipRGC-expressed melanopsin.
