PURPOSE Endocannabinoids are important modulators of synaptic transmission and plasticity throughout the central nervous system. The cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1R) is extensively expressed in the adult retina of rodents, while CB2R mRNA and protein expression have been only recently demonstrated in retinal tissue. The activation of cannabinoid receptors modulates neurotransmitter release from photoreceptors and could also affect bipolar cell synaptic release. However, the impact of CB1R and… CONTINUE READING
