Amacrine cells are [[interneurons]] found in the retina1.  They are part of the [[inner plexiform layer]], a section of the retina in which [[bipolar neurons]] communicate with amacrine cells and [[ganglion cells]]2.  Amacrine cells serve to integrate for ganglion cells the signals coming from bipolar neurons1.
 
 
'''Neuronal Type:''' Sensory Neuron, Motor Neuron, local interneuron, projection neuron, etc...
