Abstract

Acetylcholine (ACh) is probably a synaptic transmitter substance in the retina of most, if not all, vertebrates (17,35). However, in spite of a wealth of biochemical (3,22,37,44,45), pharmacological (16,25,38,43,49,50) and histochemical (4,27,39,46) evidence which supports a transmitter role for ACh in the retina, there has only been one demonstration of ACh release in response to flashes of light (26).
