New insight into eye diseases

Many diseases that lead to blindness, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, are caused by the death of certain cells in the human retina that lack the ability to regenerate. But in species such as zebrafish these cells, known as Muller glial cells (MGs), do serve as retinal stem cells that are capable of generating new cells. In a new study, a research team investigated whether the regenerative power of cells in zebrafish could be recreated in mammals, specifically mice. Ref. Source 5g.

The brain is an amazing an amazing organ and has many ways of adjusting to cope for the loss of a sense. With the loss of sight, hearing and often touch improve. The blind that I know cannot tell a $1 bill from a $20, but they can tell the various coins from one another. Likewise, many are able to adapt to using a cane or service animal rather quickly.
