Combined morphological and physiological studies of individual ON and OFF type ganglion cells revealed different inner plexiform layer stratification patterns (Nelson et al 1978, Peichl and Wässle, 1981; Amthor et al, 1989a) and suggested a basis in retinal circuitry for these types (Fig. 4). The dendrites of OFF type ganglion cells branch in the inner plexiform layer zone close to the amacrine cell bodies. Here they come in synaptic contact with the axon terminals of OFF type bipolar cells.
