Response recovery and adaptation in vertebrate photoreceptors

We make suction pipette recordings from single photoreceptors isolated from the retinas of transgenic zebrafish, and from wild-type mice.  We study the factors that contribute to the speed of recovery of the cells from light exposure.  This research has been undertaken by Dr Fivos Vogalis, and we collaborate with Professor Yoshitaka Fukada at Tokyo University.
