Paired Recording to Study Electrical Coupling Between Photoreceptors in Mouse Retina.

Gap junction-mediated electrical coupling between retinal photoreceptors is an important determinant of photoreceptor function. Yet, quantitative measurements of the junctional conductance between cou...

Circadian clock regulation of cone to horizontal cell synaptic transfer in the goldfish retina.

Although it is well established that the vertebrate retina contains endogenous circadian clocks that regulate retinal physiology and function during day and night, the processes that the clocks affect...

Light entrainment of retinal biorhythms: cryptochrome 2 as candidate photoreceptor in mammals.

The mechanisms that synchronize the biorhythms of the mammalian retina with the light/dark cycle are independent of those synchronizing the rhythms in the central pacemaker, the suprachiasmatic nucleu...

Transposon-Mediated Stable Suppression of Gene Expression in the Developing Chick Retina.

The embryonic chick has long been a favorite model system for in vivo studies of vertebrate development. However, a major technical limitation of the chick embryo has been the lack of efficient loss-o...

Limited contribution of astroglial gap junction coupling to buffering of extracellular K in CA1 stratum radiatum.

Astrocytes form large networks, in which individual cells are connected via gap junctions. It is thought that this astroglial gap junction coupling contributes to the buffering of extracellular K incr...

Neurovascular Coupling in Patients With Early Stage Diabetes Retinopathy

A variety of studies demonstrate that ocular blood flow is altered in diabetes and retinal perfusion abnormalities have been proposed to contribute to the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopa...

Effect of Breathing a Mixture of 92% Oxygen (O2) + 8% Carbon Dioxide (CO2) on Flicker Induced Blood Flow Changes in Ocular Perfusion

It has been shown that diffuse luminance flicker increases retinal and optic nerve head blood flow. This indicates that a neuro-vascular coupling between neural activity and blood flow exi...

Retinal Neuro-vascular Coupling in Patients With Neurodegenerative Disease

Alzheimer´s disease (AD) in one of the most important causes of dementia and poses a considerable challenge in health care. Today, criteria for the diagnosis and the follow up of patients...

Effect of Oxygen Breathing on Flicker Induced Blood Flow Changes in the Optic Nerve Head

Background It has recently been shown that diffuse luminance flicker increases retinal and optic nerve head blood flow. This indicates that a neuro-vascular coupling between neural activit...

Retinal Neuro-vascular Coupling in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects approximately 2.3 million patients worldwide, with a global median prevalence of 33 per 100,000. MS is diagnosed at an average of 30 years and affects twice...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Instruments for RETINOSCOPY that determines the refractive state of the EYE, such as the degree of NEARSIGHTEDNESS; FARSIGHTEDNESS; or ASTIGMATISM. In principle, a retinoscope provides a light source to illuminate the RETINA, and then locates the aerial image of the retina in space to obtain an index of the refractive quality of the patient's lens system.

Neurons of the innermost layer of the retina, the internal plexiform layer. They are of variable sizes and shapes, and their axons project via the OPTIC NERVE to the brain. A small subset of these cells act as photoreceptors with projections to the SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEUS, the center for regulating CIRCADIAN RHYTHM.

Genes and gene segments encoding the IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAINS. Gene segments of the light chain genes are designated as V (variable), J (joining), and C (constant).

Recording of the average amplitude of the resting potential arising between the cornea and the retina in light and dark adaptation as the eyes turn a standard distance to the right and the left. The increase in potential with light adaptation is used to evaluate the condition of the retinal pigment epithelium.

Recording of electric potentials in the retina after stimulation by light.
