  Off-Center cells



Off-Center cells

    Decrease their activity when light increments are presented in their receptive fields. Surrounded by an antagonistic region which responds with the opposite polarity. Both ganglion and bipolar cells are separated into two classes, on-center and off-center. The off-center cells have dendrites that branch in the outer portion of the inner plexiform layer. See also On-Center Cells.
