Re-establishment of visual circuitry after optic nerve regeneration.

Abstract:

In mammals there are a few circumstances in which axotomised ganglion cell axons can regenerate. For instance, in vitro explants of retina can be encouraged to regenerate axons into appropriate culture media. Similarly, axotomised ganglion cells can regenerate into a peripheral nerve graft surgically connected to the optic nerve head, and during early development axons are able to regenerate across the retina to re-enter the optic nerve. This is certainly encouraging, but we are a long way fr...
