Unlike most amacrine cells, whose cell bodies reside in the INL, the cell bodies of displaced amacrine cells lie in the RGC layer.

From Randlett et al. 2010 (PubMed ID 21557506):
"Displaced amacrine cells (dACs) are a subpopulation of Sox2 expressing ACs that migrate further than other ACs, and come to lie basal to the IPL in the ganglion cell layer (Galvez et al., 1977; Taranova et al., 2006). dACs still have their neurites extending apically into the IPL, and therefore exhibit an inverted polarity with respect to the other AC subtypes."
