The pupil light reflex in Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy: evidence for preservation of melanopsin-expressing retinal ganglion cells.
PURPOSE To investigate the pupillary light reflex (PLR) of patients with severe loss of vision due to Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON) in the context of a proposed preservation ofExpand

Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cell activity is associated with decreased sleep quality in patients with glaucoma.
PURPOSE To use the pupillary light reflex and polysomnography to evaluate the function of intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) and to correlate this function with structuralExpand

Efficient mitochondrial biogenesis drives incomplete penetrance in Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy
The mechanisms of incomplete penetrance in Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy are elusive. Giordano et al. show that mitochondrial DNA content and mitochondrial mass are both increased in tissuesExpand
