The ON/OFF DSGCs are commonly recognized by their bistratified dendritic arbors, which extend to two layers of the inner plexiform layer (IPL). These cell types are also known to synapse with both bipolar cells and starburst amacrine cells (SAC). As described above, there are four cell subtypes, each with own preference for direction. Each subtype of ON/OFF DSGCs has differences in dendritic patterns and axonal projections to the brain. These differences indicate that outputs from different subtypes may wire to different parts of the brain [2]
