Abstract:There is a general decline in peripheral resolution with age, indicating a corresponding loss of retinal ganglion-cell density. This age-related loss does not appear to be very selective in terms of cells that are sensitive to either stationary or flickering gratings. These results increase the diagnostic power of clinical tests that employ measures of peripheral resolution in subjects of different ages to detect diseases which cause loss of ganglion cells.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
