In the retinas of lower vertebrates, retinal photoreceptors and melanin pigment granules of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) undergo characteristic movements in response to changes in light intensity and to signals from an endogenous circadian clock. To identify agents responsible for mediating light and/or circadian regulation of these retinomotor movements, we investigated the effects of hormones and neurotransmitters on cone, rod, and RPE movements in the green sunfish, Lepomis cyanellus… CONTINUE READING
