Dendrites Passing Through a Retinal Maze: Retinal ganglion cells are nerve cells that send information about the light our eyes detect to the brain. They receive light information from other cells in the retina at structures called dendrites. Here, retinal ganglion cell dendrites (red) course through a maze of neighboring cells in the retina (blue). Courtesy of Wei Li Laboratory, NEI.
