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 —

Vision scientists disprove 60-year-old perception theory

Vision researchers at York University have disproved a long-standing theory of how the human vision system processes images, using computational models and human experiments. A team led by John Tsotsos, professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Potential corneal nerve regeneration treatment

Researchers at the University College London (UCL) Institute of Ophthalmology have found that the protein VEGF188 improves the rate of corneal nerve regeneration after an eye injury. This finding suggested that the application of eye drops containing only VEGF188 could

Researchers advance search for safer, easier way to deliver vision-saving gene therapy

In experiments with rats, pigs and monkeys, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers have developed a way to deliver sight-saving gene therapy to the retina. If proved safe and effective in humans, the technique could provide a new, more permanent therapeutic option

Prototype smartphone app can help parents detect early signs of eye disorders in children

A Baylor University researcher’s prototype smartphone app — designed to help parents detect early signs of various eye diseases in their children such as retinoblastoma, an aggressive pediatric eye cancer — has passed its first big test. The CRADLE app

Molecular basis of vision revealed

Researchers have solved the three-dimensional structure of a protein complex involved in vertebrate vision at atomic resolution, a finding that has broad implications for our understanding of biological signaling processes and the design of over a third of the drugs
