Visual scanpaths during memory retrieval tasks were associated with the quality of the memory. Researchers say the replay of a sequence of eye movements helps boost memory reconstruction.
Babies who experience severe brain bleeds during their first year of life are more likely to have long-term visual problems, a new study reports.
Researchers developed a new method for producing high numbers of human photoreceptor cells. The human photoreceptor cells can be transplanted in bulk to partially degenerated mouse retinas and improve the detection of daylight in mice with damaged eyesight.
A new study of drosophila reveals a link between circadian rhythm, diet, lifespan, and eye health. Unexpectedly, researchers found processes in the fly eye that appear to drive the aging process.
Treatment with Humanin G reduced protein levels of inflammation markers that become elevated in age-related macular degeneration.
A small group of retinal cells, known as OFF ganglion cells, can detect small dips in light levels and appear to be responsible for shadow detection.
A novel, custom-built microscope allowed researchers to track the activity of a single neuron across the entire visual cortex.
Cognitive tests that rely on vision-dependent tasks may skew results for up to 25% of adults over 50 with undiagnosed visual problems such as AMD and cataracts. This may lead to a misdiagnosis of mild cognitive impairment in older adults.
Transplanting fecal microbiota from young mice to older mice reversed hallmark signs of aging in the gut, brains, and eyes. Transplanting the fecal microbiota from old to young mice had the reverse effect, inducing inflammation in the brain and depleting a key protein associated with healthy vision.
