Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The vibrodissociation method has been applied to various CNS regions, yet never applied to vertebrate retinas. This study is aimed to examine whether this method is valid to isolate ganglion cells from a mammalian retina. In perforated-patch whole-cell recordings, the isolated ganglion cells showed sustained as well as transient spiking in response to depolarizing constant current injections, and showed voltage-gated Na+ current in response to depolarization steps. Under current-clamp, the ganglion cells somata showed spontaneous IPSP-like events of which reversal potential was approximately -80 mV. The present study suggested that the vibrodissociation method is useful to isolate rat retinal ganglion cells attached with inhibitory synaptic boutons.
