Thanks to the work of NEI scientists and grantees, we’re constantly learning new information about the causes and treatment of vision disorders. Get the latest updates about their work — along with other news about NEI.
The nervous system is made up of diverse cells that arise from progenitors in a specific time-dependent pattern. In a new study, researchers have uncovered the molecular players involved and how the timing is controlled.
New research by National Eye Institute (NEI) investigators shows that while microsaccades seem to boost or diminish the strength of the brain signals underlying attention, eye movements are not drivers of those brain signals.
Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital identified distinct functions for regions of a super-enhancer that controls gene expression during retina formation, calling it a ‘modular’ super-enhancer.
Researchers from UCSB report the development of a new microscope they describe as “Dual Independent Enhanced Scan Engines for Large field-of-view Two-Photon imaging (Diesel2p),” which provides unprecedented brain-imaging ability.
