Recent intracellular recordings using electrodes filled with a tracer dye reveal that there are at least two types of photoreceptors, type A and type T, which have distinct responses to light and terminal arborizations (Sakakibara et al.
After acquisition of learning, type B photoreceptors also undergo morphologic modification, such as a reduction in the volume of terminal arborization (Alkon et al.
