The synapse between photoreceptor and bipolar cell is important for at least three reasons: (1) it is the first synapse in the visual pathway; (2) it is the best-known tonic chemical synapse; and (3) it has perhaps the most complex and highly organized synaptic morphology in the entire brain. Yet little is known about how neurotransmitter is released from this synapse. We present in this report evidence which suggests that the release of photoreceptor neurotransmitter, presumably glutamate, is… CONTINUE READING
