    Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
    Science 332:1307-12. 2011
    ..The predicted high noise for pigments with λ(max) in the infrared presumably explains why they apparently do not exist in nature...
  2. pmc Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells detect light with a vitamin A-based photopigment, melanopsin
    Yingbin Fu
    Departments of Neuroscience and Ophthalmology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:10339-44. 2005
    ..Finally, we detected no melanopsin in the RPE and no changes in rod and cone sensitivities due to melanopsin ablation. Together, these results strongly suggest that melanopsin is the photopigment in the ipRGCs...
  3. pmc Rod sensitivity of neonatal mouse and rat
    Dong Gen Luo
    Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21205, USA
    J Gen Physiol 126:263-9. 2005
    ..Overall, we were unable to confirm a previous report that a 50-fold difference in rod sensitivity existed between neonatal and adult rats...
  4. ncbi request reprint Parietal-eye phototransduction components and their potential evolutionary implications
    Chih Ying Su
    Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
    Science 311:1617-21. 2006
    ..Gustducin-alpha resembles transducin-alpha functionally and likely mediates the hyperpolarizing response. The parietopsin-Go signaling pair provides clues about how rod and cone phototransduction might have evolved...
  5. doi request reprint Light responses of primate and other mammalian cones
    Li Hui Cao
    Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Center for Sensory Biology, and Department of Ophthalmology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 111:2752-7. 2014
    ..This revised information is important for ultimately understanding human retinal signal processing and correlating with psychophysical data. ..

    Nat Neurosci 11:565-71. 2008
    ..Our measurements provide a rationale for why mammalian red, green and blue cones have comparable sensitivities, unlike their amphibian counterparts...
