Dopaminergic Amacrine Cells

I spent some time last weekend going back through some old data on the microscope, and am really wanting to get into some particular issues in retina.  The amacrine cells in our databases, and are in desperate need of chasing down.  These amacrine cells in particular, the dopaminergic amacrine cells might not be able to have their entire connectomes annotated as easily given that they are more rare, but also pretty wide field, and there is no way we’d be able to capture their entire field.  That said, there are lots of outstanding questions about these particular amacrine cells, like where did they come from evolutionarily? What *precisely* do they do?

And besides… just look at them… Aren’t they pretty?
