Retinal physiology: Adapting to the changing scene

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The retina needs to process visual information under a wide range of conditions, a feat facilitated by gain controls. Recent results have provided new insights into one such gain control which enables the retina to adapt to wide variations in the level of contrast in the visual scene.
