S-nitrosylation mediates synaptic plasticity in the retina
Over the course of an entire day, our visual system must accommodate intensities of light that can change by a factor of 10¹⁰. In order to do so, the retina adapts to large, daily changes in natural light intensity by shifting its dynamic range of coding. For example, as morning light intensity increases, the retina implements multiple strategies that result in decreases in overall sensitivity in order to avoid saturation. However, adaptation to bright environments poses the inherent risk of losing visual information carried by dim/weak signals in complex natural scenes. Here we studied whether ...
