Definition of amacrine cell in English:
A small nerve cell within the retina which has dendrites but no axon.
- Its pathogenesis is thought to involve cone and amacrine cell dysfunction in the retina.
- The best-studied amacrine cell synapses are those made onto ganglion cells and the feedback synapses made onto bipolar cells.
- One of the major objectives of our work is to understand how the function of amacrine cell synapses is modulated.
