The Bionic Retina: A Small Molecule with Big Potential for Visual Restoration

Academic Article

Abstract

  • In this issue of Neuron, Polosukhina et al. (2012) intravitreally deliver the light-activatable molecule acrylamide-azobenzene-quaternary ammonium (AAQ) to the eyes of mice with end-stage retinal degeneration. Results show that, with the appropriate illumination, AAQ restores light sensitivity and visual behavior. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
