  1. true or false, there are no horizontal cells involved in the surround receptive field.
    false. The surround receptive field involves connections with horizontal cells, while the center receptive field doesn't employ the use of horizontal cells
  2. what is the conjunctiva?
    a membrane that folds back from the inside of the eyelids and attaches to the sclera
  3. what is the innermost layer of the retina?
    the ganglion cell layer
  4. where are the ganglion cell bodies located in the retina?
    in the ganglion cell layer
  5. what does the inner nuclear layer contain?
    the inner nuclear layer contains the cell bodies of the bipolar cells, the horizontal and amacrine cells.
  6. what does the outer nuclear layer contain?
    it contains the cell bodies of the photoreceptors
  7. what does the layer of photoreceptor outer segments contain?
    contains the light-sensitive elements of the retina.
  8. what is the inner plexiform layer?
    it contains the synaptic contacts between the bipolar cells, amacrine cells, and ganglion cells
  9. what is the outer plexiform layer?
    it is where the photoreceptors make synaptic contact with the bipolar and horizontal cells
