Mammals can be stimulated to regrow damaged inner retina nerve cells

... of specific growth factor stimulation on the proliferation of Mller glia cells. The researchers injected a substance into the retina to eliminate ganglion cells (a type of nerve cell found near the surface of the retina) and amacrine cells. Then by injecting the eye with epidermal growth factor (EGF), ...

Transplanted photoreceptor precursor cells restore visual function in mice with retinal degeneration

... were functional for the duration of the study. Scientists observed improvements including pupil response to light and response to light stimuli from ganglion cells, which form the circuitry to the brain. Swaroop explains that photoreceptors constitute "the first line of information capture in ...

Researchers discover way to make cells in the eye sensitive to light

... uses light at different wavelengths to regenerate itself. In some forms of hereditary blindness photoreceptors are lost entirely, but the retinal ganglion cells, the cells which signal to the brain, remain intact. The researchers believe that by activating the melanopsin, these cells may gain the ...
