Picky Neurons

Munich, Germany — The visual thalamus is classically known to relay visual stimuli coming from the retina to the cerebral cortex. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology now show...

Researchers Grow Stem Cells to Cure Glaucoma

Moscow Oblast, Russia — A joint research carried out by MIPT scientists and Harvard researchers have presented retinal cells that can integrate into the retina. This is the first successful attempt...

Machine Learning Helps Grow Artificial Organs

Dolgoprudny, Russia — Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Ivannikov Institute for System Programming, and the Harvard Medical School-affiliated Schepens Eye Research Institute...

Autism Eye Scan could Lead to Early Detection

Adelaide, Australia — A new eye scan could help identify autism in children years earlier than currently possible. The non-invasive eye scan utilises a hand-held device to find a pattern of subtle...

Helper Protein Worsens Diabetic Eye Disease

Baltimore, MD — In a recent study using mice, lab-grown human retinal cells and patient samples, Johns Hopkins Medicine scientists say they found evidence of a new pathway that may contribute to degeneration...

Babies in Womb may See More Than We Thought

Berkeley, CA — By the second trimester, long before a baby’s eyes can see images, they can detect light.  But the light-sensitive cells in the developing retina — the thin sheet of brain-like...

Birth of vision, from Retina to Brain

Geneva, Switzerland — How is the retina formed? And how do neurons differentiate to become individual components of the visual system? By focusing on the early stages of this complex process, researchers...

Origin of Neuromodulator in the Retina Pinpointed

Evanston, IL — A single cell type in the inner retina controls the release of nitric oxide, a neuromodulator that impacts synaptic transmission and regulates blood vessel dilation, according to a Northwestern...
