Calcium and light adaptation in retinal photoreceptors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the past several years there has been great progress in the understanding of the phototransduction process in retinal photoreceptors. Recently, this knowledge has expanded and we now understand the mechanism of background light adaptation in these cells and the role that calcium has to play.
