Hereditary Optic Atrophy

Hereditary optic atrophy is a mitochondrially inherited disease that results in bilateral subacute loss of central vision due to degeneration of retinal ganglion cells and the optic nerve. Here is the latest research.


Interoception refers to the sense of physiological state of the body. It can be both conscious and unconscious. Here is the latest research on this topic.

Microglia & Spinal Somatosensory Circuits

Microglia are found throughout the brain and spinal cord and are the resident macrophages of the CNS. There have been investigations into the involvement of microglia in somatosensory sensory circuits within the spinal cord and associated diseases. Here is the latest research on microglia and spinal somatosensory circuits.
