An objective functional biomarker of retinal ganglion cell function: Applications for probing disease mechanisms
Seminar | September 10 | 11:10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall
Suresh Viswanathan, Associate Professor & Chair of Biological and Vision Sciences, SUNY College of Optometry
Work over the last decade and a half have identified and characterized a retinal ganglion cell nerve component in the flash electroretinogram. This talk will review the evidence for retinal ganglion cell origin of this potential, its mechanism of generation and applications towards understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms of glaucoma and mild traumatic brain injury.
