Teleost fish retinas can regenerate in vivo in adulthood. Retinal and visual function was assessed in adult goldfish following comprehensive retinal destruction by intraocular injection of ouabain. Electroretinograms (ERGs) and the dorsal light reflex (DLR) were used to evaluate the return of visual function. ERGs were detectable in regenerating eyes 50 to 70 days following ouabain injection. Amplitudes of both a- and b-waves increased steadily through day 210 following ouabain treatment, at… CONTINUE READING
