Abstract The distribution of GABA-like immunoreactivity (GABA-LI) was performed in the lamprey retinopetal system which was previously identified by either anterograde or retrograde axonal tracing methods. This study was carried out at the ultrastructural level for the retina and under both the light and electron microscope for the mesencephalic retinopetal centers (M5 and RMA). The GABA-LI was distributed in about 40\% of anterogradely HRP-labeled axon terminals in the inner retina. These made synaptic contacts upon either HRP-labeled ganglion cell dendrites or mostly on GABA-LI or on immunonegative amacrine cell dendrites and somata. The other immunonegative HRP-labeled axon terminals also established synaptic contacts on amacrine cell dendrites and somata. The mesencephalic retinopetal neurons, retrogradely labeled with HRP or [3H]proline, were GABA-LI in 65\% of M5 somata and only in 15\% of RMA neurons. M5 and RMA retinopetal neurons and dendrites, either GABA-LI or immunonegative, were contacted: (1) asymmetrically by HRP-labeled or unlabeled axon terminals containing rounded synaptic vesicles, always immunonegative and (2) symmetrically by HRP-unlabeled axon terminals containing pleiomorphic synaptic vesicles, which were either GABA-LI or immunonegative. The role of GABA as a putative neurotransmitter in the centrifugal visual system is discussed.
