Retinal Dopamine Depletion in Young Quail Mimics Some of the Effects of Ageing on Visual Function

Abstract

The hypothesis that retinal dopaminergic (DA) neurones are involved in the visual functions of interest was tested. The retinal DA in young quail was partially depleted by intravitreal injection of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA). It was found that the refractive state of 6-OHDA-treated birds became more myopic than normal (untreated) young, whereas the pupil… (More)
