Short answer question:
The retina processes information similar to a computer. Which neurons in which pathways play a role?
Describe some of the functions of the pathways. In which important way does retinal information
processing differ from that of a usual computer?
Horizontal and vertical pathways; horizontal pathway consists of horizontal cells and amacrine
cells, while the vertical pathway consists of photoreceptors, bipolar cells, ganglion cells; the
vertical pathway passes on information from the light that is being projected on the surface of
the retina to other parts of the brain, and there is convergence of information; outside of the
fovea, there are multiple photoreceptors that project onto a single bipolar cell; i
