Amacrine cell

  • Amacrine cells are interneurons in the human retina within the eyeball that interact with retinal ganglion cells and/or bipolar cells.
  • Amacrine cells are an example of neurons which are the nerve cells that comprise the human central nervous system.
  • Amacrine cells are activated by and provide feedback to bipolar cells. They also form junctions with ganglion cells and communicate with each other.
  • Amacrine cells send complex spatial and temporal information about the visual world to ganglion cells.
