The distribution of voltage across the proximal axon underlies spike initiation in response to electric stimulation of retinal ganglion cells

Shelley Fried
Purpose: We are studying the response of retinal neurons to electric stimulation in order to develop more effective methods of stimulation for use during clinical trials. Our recent study indicates that a dense band of sodium channels in the proximal portion of the axon was the site at which activation[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
