Diurnal patterns of dopamine release in chicken retina

Megaw, Pam; Boelen, Mary; Morgan, Ian; Boelen, Meeuwis


The retinal dopaminergic system appears to play a major role in the regulation of global retinal processes related to light adaptation. Although most reports agree that dopamine release is stimulated by light, some retinal functions that are mediated by dopamine exhibit circadian patterns of activity, suggesting that dopamine release may be controlled by a circadian oscillator as well as by light. Using the accumulation of the dopamine metabolite dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) in the...[Show more]
