Retinal ganglion cells whose dendrites arborize in the outer half of the Inner Plexiform Layer are generally known to be OFF-RGCs--i.e., they respond to a decrease of light in the center of the receptive field. Notably, several subcategories of OFF bipolar cell have processes in the same sublaminae as J-RGC dendrites, while processes of ON bipolar cells have been found to overlap minimally with J-RGCs. Thus the arborization pattern of J-RGCs led Kim et al. to first hypothesize that these cells are OFF retinal ganglion cells.
