Transcorneal electrical stimulation alters morphology and survival of retinal ganglion cells after optic nerve damage.

Abstract

Traumatic optic nerve injury leads to retrograde death of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), but transcorneal electrical stimulation (TES) can increase the cell survival rate. To understand the mechanisms and to further define the TES-induced effects we monitored in living animals RGC morphology and survival after optic nerve crush (ONC) in real time by using… (More)
