  • Practice, not loss of sight, improves sense of touch in the blind: study Noticia completa

    New research from McMaster University may answer a controversial question: do the blind have a better sense of touch because the brain compensates for vision loss or because of heavy reliance on their fingertips?

  • Will we hear the light?
    Noticia completa

    University of Utah scientists used invisible infrared light to make rat heart cells contract and toadfish inner-ear cells send signals to the brain. The discovery someday might improve cochlear implants for deafness and lead to devices to restore vision, maintain balance and treat movement disorders like Parkinson’s.

  • The self-made eye: Formation of optic cup from ES cells Noticia completa

    Developmental processes are increasingly well-characterized at the molecular and cell biological levels, but how more complex tissues and organs involving the coordinated action of multiple cell types in three dimensions is achieved remains something of a black box.

  • Scientists create stable, self-renewing neural stem cells Noticia completa

    In a paper published in the April 25 early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco and colleagues report a game-changing advance in stem cell science: the creation of long-term, self-renewing, primitive neural precursor cells from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) that can be directed to become many types of neuron without increased risk of tumor formation.

  • Latest advances in gene therapy for ocular disease are highlighted in Human Gene Therapy Noticia completa

    Disorders of the eye are excellent targets for gene therapy because the ocular environment is readily accessible, relatively easy to monitor, and sequestered from the rest of the body.

  • Thalamus may play a key role in regulating migraine pain Noticia completa

    The anatomy of migraine ”“ a close look at the neurobiology of the disease ”“ focuses on the thalamus, the area of the brain that is involved in sensory perception and regulation of motor functions, in one a major session of the 53rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Headache Society meeting here this week.

  • IUPUI faculty member to receive national innovative vision research award Noticia completa

    Jason S. Meyer, Ph.D., assistant professor of biology in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, will be honored by the largest eye and vision research organization in the world for work which one day may lead to reversal of blindness caused by macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and other diseases of the retina.

  • Sections of retinas regenerated and visual function increased with stem cells from skin Noticia completa

    Scientists from Schepens Eye Research Institute are the first to regenerate large areas of damaged retinas and improve visual function using IPS cells (induced pluripotent stem cells) derived from skin.

  • Research Identifies Risk Factors Associated With Progression of Glaucoma
    Noticia completa

    Elevated pressure inside the eye, cornea thinning, and visual field loss are all markers that glaucoma may progress.

  • Scientists Reveal Nerve Cells’ Navigation System Noticia completa

    Johns Hopkins scientists have discovered how two closely related proteins guide projections from nerve cells with exquisite accuracy, alternately attracting and repelling these axons as they navigate the most miniscule and frenetic niches of the nervous system to make remarkably precise connections.

  • How Retinas Develop: Scientists Make Strides in Vision Research Noticia completa

    New research at UC Santa Barbara is contributing to the basic biological understanding of how retinas develop.

  • Forecast Calls for Nanoflowers to Help Return Eyesight: Physicist Leads Effort to Design Fractal Devices to Put in Eyes Noticia completa

    University of Oregon researcher Richard Taylor is on a quest to grow flowers that will help people who’ve lost their sight, such as those suffering from macular degeneration, to see again.

  • Why the Eye Is Better Than a Camera at Capturing Contrast and Faint Detail Simultaneously Noticia completa

    The human eye long ago solved a problem common to both digital and film cameras: how to get good contrast in an image while also capturing faint detail.

  • Scientists Hoping to Cure Blindness in Premature Babies Noticia completa

    Scientists from the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences at Queen’s University Belfast are teaming up to develop a cure to an illness that can lead to blindness in premature babies, thanks to funding from children’s charity Action Medical Research.

  • Novel Pathway Regulating Angiogenesis: May Fight Retinal Disease, Cancers Noticia completa

    Scientists have identified in the journal Nature a new molecular pathway used to suppress blood vessel branching in the developing retina — a finding with potential therapeutic value for fighting diseases of the retina and a variety of cancers.

  • Phase 2 Clinical Trial Data Of UF-021 In Retinitis Pigmentosa Patients Presented At ARVO 2011 Noticia completa

  • Reconstruir fotorreceptores, clave en recuperación funcional en agujero macular Noticia completa

    En el abordaje del agujero macular el éxito quirúrgico supera el 90 por ciento de los casos. Sin embargo, no todos los pacientes consiguen una mejorí­a funcional.

  • Regeneran la retina de ratones mediante células iPS Noticia completa

    Cientí­ficos del Instituto de Investigación del Ojo Schepens, afiliado a la Facultad de Medicina de Harvard, en Boston, han sido los primeros en regenerar grandes áreas de retinas dañadas y mejorar la función visual utilizando células iPS derivadas de la piel.

  • La percepción visual dirige la forma de las neuronas de la corteza cerebral Noticia completa

    Las neuronas estrelladas adquieren su forma definitiva en dos fases y para adquirir su forma necesitan que haya una percepción sensorial adecuada, tal y como ha demostrado el grupo de Ví­ctor Borrell, del Instituto de Neurociencias de la Universidad Miguel Hernández, en Alicante, en un estudio que se publica en Journal of Neuroscience.

  • La hormona tiroidea interviene en la regulación de la producción de pigmentos visuales en los conos de la retina Noticia completa

  • El bevacizumab intraví­treo es eficaz para el tratamiento de la retinopatí­a de la prematuridad grave Noticia completa

    Objetivo: comparar la eficacia del tratamiento con bevacizumab intraví­treo frente a la del tratamiento convencional con láser para disminuir la recurrencia de la retinopatí­a de la prematuridad (ROP).
