The emergence and maturation of dopaminergic neurons during postnatal development of the rabbit retina have been followed using high affinity uptake, content, synthesis, storage, metabolism, and release of dopamine as transmitter-specific physiological probes. Autoradiographic and histochemical studies have shown that dopamine-containing neurons in the rabbit retina belong to a class of amacrine cells whose processes ramify mainly in the most distal region of the inner plexiform layer. These… Expand
Postnatal development of serotonin-accumulating neurones in the rabbit retina and an immunohistochemical analysis of the uptake and release of serotonin.
TLDR
The serotonin-accumulating neurones in the rabbit and bovine retina were studied with the use of immunohistochemistry to localize serotonin and formed a strong case for serotonin being a likely transmitter in the mammalian retina. Expand
Dopaminergic neurones in various retinas and the postnatal development of tyrosine-hydroxylase immunoreactivity in the rabbit retina
TLDR
It is concluded that localisation of either 3H-dopamine uptake or tyrosine-hydroxylase provides a means of locating catecholamine neurones in retinas of a variety of animals. Expand

TLDR
By the authors' criteria, putative GABAergic and glycinergic amacrine cells are mature between postnatal day 10 (P10) and P12, around the time when the eyes first open and direction-selective ganglion cells can first be recorded. Expand
Postnatal Development of a Mammalian Retina: Neurotransmitters as Physiological and Anatomical Probes
TLDR
This article summarises the studies to-date on the postnatal development of putative GABA-ergic, glycinergic and dopaminergic neurons in the rabbit retina. Expand
The ontogenesis of the dopaminergic cell in the pre- and postnatal guinea pig retina
TLDR
Although a significant degree of development of the dopaminergic neurotransmitter system in the guinea pig occurs before birth the attainment of a fully mature system postnatally may require normal photic stimulation of physiologic activity. Expand
Ontogenesis of dopaminergic neurons in the post-natal rabbit retina: pre- and post-synaptic elements.
TLDR
The post-natal development of several aspects of the dopaminergic system in the rabbit have been examined and it is suggested that the continued presence of neurotransmitter is not necessary for the developmental process to continue that the commitment of particular neurons to become dopaminationergic may be made earlier than 5-6 days post-natally.

Development of cholinergic neurons of the rat retina.
TLDR
Biochemical and electrophysiological features of cholinergic neurons from the developing rat retina were analyzed in an attempt to identify important periods in the maturation of these neurons, indicating that two developmental periods can be described. Expand
Ultrastructure and synapses of the [3H]dopamine-accumulating neurons in the retina of the rabbit.
TLDR
The investigation confirms that the [3H]dopamine-accumulating neurons are amacrine cells with large cell bodies situated in the innermost row of the inner nuclear layer and characteristically contain large dense-cored vesicles of 90–160 nm diameter. Expand
Distribution and morphology of tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive neurons in the developing mouse retina.
TLDR
Biochemical measurements of the endogenous catecholamine content showed that at all developmental stages only dopamine was detectable, suggesting that the TH-labeled cells represent dopaminergic neurons. Expand
Dopamine synthesis and metabolism in rhesus monkey retina: development, aging, and the effects of monocular visual deprivation.
TLDR
Dopamine synthesis and metabolism, and the ontogenetic increase of the retinal dopamine level of rhesus monkey are reduced by light deprivation. Expand

Postnatal development of glycinergic neurons in the rabbit retina
TLDR
The uptake and K+‐stimulated release of glycine are used as physiological probes to follow the emergence and maturation of putative glycinergic neurons during postnatal development of the rabbit retina and suggest that the glycine‐accumulating neurons may be a subpopulation of amacrine cells and may use glycine as a neurotransmitter. Expand
Postnatal development of GABA‐ergic neurons in the rabbit retina
TLDR
It is shown that certain neurons in the newborn retina already possess a specific mechanism for GABA uptake, and the commitment by certain neurons to use GABA as the transmitter is made prenatally. Expand

TLDR
The results show that similar to the development of GABA‐ergic and glycinergic properties, the uptake, synthesis, and release mechanisms for dopamine emerge at different stages during retinal differentiation in Xenopus Laevis. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that dopamine acts as an inhibitory retinal neurotransmitter which may mediate a neural component of retinal sensitivity control. Expand
Synaptic organization of the dopaminergic neurons in the rabbit retina
TLDR
Observations suggest that the indoleamine‐accumulating processes synapse with bipolar cells, although this drug gave less distinct labelling which made the observations less decisive than with 5,6‐DHT. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that these properties emerge in a precise temporal pattern during retinal differentiation: the specific neuronal uptake of GABA synthesis which is followed by K+‐stimulated GABA release. Expand
Postnatal development of dopaminergic cells in the rat retina
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that the initiation of retinal DA synthesis is independent of environmental lighting condition, but an adequate light stimulus is required for continued normal development of DA‐cells. Expand

Experiments involving the use of several dopaminergic agonist and antagonist drugs indicate that this system possesses similar, if not identical pharmacological properties to those reported in various areas of the mammalian central nervous system. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that up to a certain concentration CA do not affect directly the transmission from photoreceptors to horizontal cells, but the lateral propagation of S-potential appears selectively affected by CA. Expand
