This chapter shows that retinal detachment in the ground squirrel model does not have a larger impact on S-cone than on M-cone function as indexed by signals originating in the outer retina. To the contrary, to the extent that there is any differential effect of detachment on function subserved by the two cone types, the results suggest that the loss may be slightly in the opposite direction, that is, a proportionally greater effect of detachment on M-cone than on the S-cone function.
