The role of Nogo-A in visual deficits induced by retinal injury.

Julius Baya Mdzomba, PhD - Université Laval
Universite Laval

Nogo-A, an inhibitor of neural growth, prevents regeneration after injury. Blocking of Nogo-A aides recovery, also in the visual system after retinal damage. Baya Mdzomba show with our OptoDrum that visual behavior benefits from Nogo-A neutralization after retinal damage typically found in diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma.
