  • Calcium Dynamics of Ganglion Cell Layer Neurons in rd1 Mice 

    Carr, Jessica
    In the rd1 mouse model of inherited retinal degeneration, activation of P2X7 purinoreceptors (P2X7r) has been suggested to lead to the formation of pores permeable to large molecules in retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). This ...

    Henderson, Delaney
    The loss of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) is the hallmark of optic neuropathies, such as glaucoma. Monitoring RGC function and subsequent dysfunction over time is an invaluable tool in experimental optic neuropathies and ...
  • Contribution of Na(v) channels to the development and function of the retina 

    Smith, Benjamin
    Voltage gated (Nav) channel isoforms are precisely located in the nervous system and expressed sequentially during development. Because Nav channels control the rising phase of action potentials isoform differences may ...
  • Motion Coding Strategies in the Retina 

    Trenholm, Stuart (2013-03-13)
    Early experimental work suggested that the retina’s main role was to detect changes in brightness and contrast, namely working as a light detector, and that most of the complex computations in the visual system happened ...
  • Vision 

    Dinwiddie, James (2009-07-28)
    This notebook kept by James Dinwiddie examines vision. Dinwiddie describes the structures of the eye as well as the diffraction and refraction of light. This file consists of two journals that are 26 pages in length.
