I were requested to write down a quick foreword to this quantity honoring Hisako Ikeda, offering a assessment of the accomplishments in our box over the last 4 a long time, while Hisako used to be an energetic player. This i'm extremely joyful to do. it's been a most enjoyable time in imaginative and prescient learn and Hisako has been correct in the midst of a lot of the thrill, publishing on a wide selection of themes and supplying a lot new information and lots of new insights. Hisako's examine profession should be divided via many years into 4 rather certain components of inquiry. within the Fifties, as a scholar in Japan, her examine pursuits have been psychophysical in nature, and she or he was once interested by visible illusions, figural aftereffects, and movement detec­ tion. within the Nineteen Sixties, after her flow to London, she all started electrophysiological stories. a lot of her paintings within the Sixties was once focused on the electroretinogram (ERG), its elements, and using this electric reaction for comparing spectral sensitivities of the attention and retinal degenerations. This paintings represented the start of her electrodiagnostic medical paintings, which persisted until eventually her retirement.

Rod signals reach one group of ganglion cell (Fig. 6, a-type beta GC) via chemical synaptic input from the All amacrine cell lobular appendages (boxed area a, Fig. 6): other types of ganglion cells (Fig. , 1987, Sterling, Freed & Smith, 1988). The cone bipolars stimulate the relevent ganglion cell by excitatory chemical synapses (Kolb, 1979). Two other cell types are also influential upon the rod pathways.
