Abstract

One type of interplexiform cell (IPC) in the dace retina was discriminated physiologically from other cell classes and identified morphologically with HRP staining. This type responded with slow hyperpolarizing potentials to white diffuse light, and in addition a slow hyperpolarization (after potential) was observed after the cessation of light with relatively high intensities. The latency of the ON phase of the response was always longer than that of the second-order neurons and the amacrine cells. Morphologically, this type of IPC was similar in appearance with the dopaminergic IPC. The conventional synaptic specialization between this type of IPC and horizontal cells was observed, and the IPC was presynaptic.
