Abstract

[Extract]
During the past decade there has been considerable debate about whether serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) plays a transmitter role in the vertebrate retina. There is now strong support for the idea that serotonin is a transmitter substance in non-mammalian species, i. e. that serotonin is present in significant amounts in these retinas and can be localized in specific populations of amacrine cells by the Falck and Hillarp method or with immunohistochemical techniques (Ehinger 1982, Osborne et al. 1982, Osborne 1984). However, it still remains to be shown that the amine has a neurotransmitter role in mammalian retina.
