The Nerve Signals in the Eye and Brain Look Alike

In a new study, researchers from the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Copenhagen, among others, have mapped some of the cells that send signals around the retina. The studied eye cells appear to work just like similar cells in the brain and probably help to relieve great strain on the eye in connection with e.g. detachment of the retina and blood clots, the researchers argue.
