Ganglion Cells

Ganglion Cells are neurons that relay information from the retina to the brain via the optic nerve. There are at least three classes of ganglion cells (midget, parasol, and bistratified), which vary in function and connect to different visual centers in the brain. For example, parasol ganglion cells are responsible for detecting motion, while midget ganglion cells detect visual details.
