Visual function may be studied in experimental animals for different purposes, such as visual system basic research, functional role of new genes, animal selection for behavioral tests and search for new therapies of visual deficits, among others. In our laboratory, we use electrophysiological test in order to full check different aspects of the visual(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertriglyceridemia in combination with low HDL cholesterol levels is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
