Abstract

Since amacrine cells are important interneurons of the inner retina and their activity may be detected in certain waveforms of the electroretinogram, this paper reviews their morphologies, classification, mosaics, neurotransmitter content, neural circuitry and physiological responses to light. Nine different amacrine cell types of cat, rabbit and human retinas are presently quite well studied in terms of the aforementioned aspects and are described in detail in this paper.
