Canadian researchers say they've discovered cells that support neuron survival also play a role in the death of neurons located in the eye. Researchers from the University of Montreal and McGill University said their findings might lead to improved therapies for some neurological disorders, including glaucoma and retinal artery occlusion. The scientists said in many neurodegenerative diseases, a main factor that kills neurons is excessive levels of the neurotransmitter glutamate.
