Abstract

This paper reviews the mechanisms of transmitter release, the kinetics of synaptic transfer, the mechanisms for the production of conductance changes by transmitters, and the nature of the conductance changes at synapses in vertebrate retina. A method for the culturing of adult retinal cells is described, together with preliminary experiments on the identification of cells in culture.
