Eye Cells Could Help Diagnose Eye Disease

shutterstock-brain-scanNew findings which could help diagnose and track the progression of Alzheimer’s disease were revealed at the US Society for Neuroscience conference this week.

The team found that genetically engineered mice with Alzheimer’s lost thickness in specific cells in the retina. As the retina is a direct extension of the brain, the team concluded that the loss of retinal neurons could be related to the loss of brain cells in Alzheimer’s disease.

It is believed that these findings could one day lead to Alzheimer’s disease being detected in a regular eye test
