Abstract:

Our work during this period mainly involved the use of 1 immunohistochemical techniques to identify neuroactive substances in the ground squirrel retina with emphasis on the substances present in ganglion cells, 2 intracellular injections of Lucifer Yellow and retrograde transport of fluorescent carbocyanine dyes to examine the dendritic morphology of ganglion cells projecting to the superior colliculus and dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus, and 3 EM studies of retinas from the immunohistochemical experiments to determine the synaptic organization in the inner plexiform layer of neurons expressing a particular neuroactive substance.
