Hemangioblasts Aiding Eye Damage Repair

...mple, we injected the cells into mice with damaged retinas due to diabetes or other eye injury. The cells migrated to the injured eye, and incorporated and lit-up the entire damaged vasculature. The cells are really smart, and amazingly, knew not to do anything in uninjured eyes."The cells also showed remark...

Colour Identification Lies Wholly On the Left Hemisphere of the Brain.

...ocessing of signals from the left side of both the retinas of the eyes. Because light from objects to our right falls mainly into the left-hand area of our retinas, the researchers hypothesized that colours to the right would feel the influence of language more keenly. Conversely, objects on our left side...

Lymph Cell Growth In Eyes Related To Macrophages

...nstance, inducing new “temporary” lymph vessels in retinas could aid in treating diabetic retinopathy by removing fluids leaking from abnormal blood vessels. It is this leaking fluid, characteristic of diabetic retinopathy that can permanently damage the retina and vision. The team is now researching the sa...

Brain Cell Repair Loss disclosed

... investigators took lab-grown nerve cells from the retinas of rat embryos and newborns and compared growth rates. Surprising, but even if the cells from newborn rats were given a host of growth-enhancing biochemicals, the embryonic rat cell axons grew about 10 times faster, sprouting out at an average speed ...
