The receptive field of an orientation selective ganglion cell, with an excitatory center (+) and inhibitory surround (-).[1]

AMPA and NMDA Receptors

AMPA and NMDA receptors have been found to play a significant role in signal integration in ganglion cells found in rabbit retinas.[2] AGB cation was used to evaluate the differences in permeability of the different ganglion cells types when kainate, AMPA, and NMDA receptors were activated.
