Retina ganglion cellDistal equivalent dendriteNicotinicStarburst amacrine cellsStarburst amacrine cells release a pulse of Ach onto ganglion cells dendrites (Masland RH et al, 1984 [rabbit ]113 ; Massey SC and Redburn DA, 1985 [rabbit ]114 )(sobiv p217)(Linn DM et al, 1991 [rabbit ]115 ; Famiglietti EV, 1991 [rabbit ]116 )(sobiv 242). This is excitatory (Schmidt M et al, 1987 [cat ]117 ; Kaneda M et al, 1995 [cat ]118 )(sobiv p217), boosting ganglion cell transients, increasing sensitivity to motion (Sterling P, 1998119 )(sobiv p217). These nicotinic receptors desensitize rapidly (Kaneda M et al, 1995 [cat ]118 )(sobiv 242). Dendritic compartments not specified.
