Retina amacrine cell

Name: Retina amacrine cell
Description: Cell in the inner plexiform layer of the retina, consisting of multiple dendrites and no axon. It makes synaptic connections with bipolar cell terminals and ganglion cell dendrites, as well as other amacrine cell dendrites. Amacrine II cells have gap junctions with bipolar terminals and other amacrine cells, which are switched on for night time vision.
Synonym(s): Amacrine Neuron type II, Type II Amacrine cell
Abbreviation: AC
