Retrograde staining of retina of Lymnaea stagnalis with neurobiotin demonstrated that most photoreceptor cells send axons to the optic nerve directly, without intermediate contacts. Some of the photoreceptors are glutamate-immunoreactive suggesting that glutamate can provide the synaptic transmission of visual signal to the central neurons. Other photoreceptors stained via optic nerve seem to have other transmitter systems. Some of the retinal cells, but not the optic nerve fibers are pigment… CONTINUE READING
