A paper published online on January 10 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine reports that retinal ganglion cellsâ€”neurons in the eyeâ€”are rescued by immune cells that infiltrate the mouse retina after eye injury.
Melanopsin, a light sensor that sets the circadian rhythm- the bodyâ€™s biological clock- also plays an important role in vision, according to this study.
Better known as the light sensor that sets the body's biological clock, melanopsin also plays an important role in vision: Via its messengers-so-called melanopsin-expressing retinal ganglion cells, or mRGCs-it forwards information about the brightness of incoming light directly to conventional visual centers in the brain.
Harvard scientists push SRS microscopy to new levels of spatial, temporal precision.
The eye is not just a lens that takes pictures and converts them into electrical signals.
Salk researchers map functional connections between retinal neurons at single-cell resolution.
Physicists and neuroscientists from the University of Pennsylvania have linked the cell structure of the retina to the light and dark contrasts of the natural world, demonstrating the likelihood that the neural pathways humans use for seeing are adapted to best capture the world around us.
BERGISCH GLADBACH, Germany, September 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Miltenyi Biotec announces the worldwide first and exclusive release of the Anti-GLAST (ACSA-1) MicroBead Kit.
We run our modern lives largely by the clock, from the alarms that startle us out of our slumbers and herald each new workday to the watches and clocks that remind us when it's time for meals, after-school pick-up and the like.
