Rapid development of functional neuroimaging techniques have brought about a growing interest for neurovascular coupling in neuroresearch, which, in turn, has prompted similar research in ophthalmology. There are now hints that neurovascular coupling is disturbed in glaucoma. The contact of the nerve terminals to the cortical blood vessels is mostly realized through astrocytes. A major defining property of glaucoma, cupping of the optic disk, implies tissue remodeling of the optic nerve head… CONTINUE READING
