Amacrine cells, which share the histamine receptors of LMCs, should hyperpolarize to light increments and contribute in the sensitivity control of R-LMC synapses
In addition, it has been shown that strychnine (a glycine antagonist) but not Bic iontophoresis on motoneurons reverse their hyperpolarization during PS indicating that the premotoneurons responsible use glycine and not GABA to hyperpolarize them during PS
