Bistratified Ganglion Cells

Bistratified ganglion cells are characterized by their two layer structure in the retina.  The blue-yellow pathway originates in a bistratified ganglion cell type and the associated interneurons that combine excitation from S cones and inhibition from L and M cones. For more information on this topic see Dacey, D. M. (2000). "Parallel pathways for spectral coding in primate retina." Annual Review of Neuroscience 23: 743-75.
