Short-sightedness: Genetic test could help at-risk children

A test that could help identify children at risk of developing severe short-sightedness has been devised by researchers. It usually develops during childhood and is thought to affect up to one in three people in the UK. But one in

Zebrafish study reveals developmental mechanisms of eye movement

Researchers studying zebrafish have found that genes linked to autism spectrum disorder and other developmental brain abnormalities may be playing a role in people who cannot control their eye movements. The findings, to publish this week in The Journal of Neuroscience —
