PURPOSE Increasing evidence shows that structural changes in dendrites play an important role in neuronal degenerative processes. The aims of this study were to characterize and delineate morphological changes of dendrites in retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and their central target neurons in the superior colliculus (SC) and lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) in experimental rat glaucoma. METHODS Chronic ocular hypertension (OHT) was surgically induced in rats and animals were sacrificed at 1, 4… CONTINUE READING
