Description

This fourth volume in the Retina Research Foundation Symposia Proceedings highlights several of the strategies and experimental paradigms that are used to exploit and amplify the regenerative capacity of the adult mammalian visual system, and reviews the advances being made in understanding the molecular basis of central nervous system regeneration. Because loss of neurons or interruptions of their connective pathways in the mammalian visual system can, in contrast to certain amphibians and fish, lead to permanent loss of vision, studies of regeneration and plasticity in this system serve as valuable models for the reconstitution of other parts of the nervous system and as potential approaches to the diverse disorders that lead to visual loss.
