Andrew Huberman, Ph.D., professor of neurobiology, Stanford School of Medicine presents "Visual restoration: bridges and gaps to curing blindness in humans" January 25, 2017, at the National Institutes of Health. The lecture was part of the National Eye Institute Audacious Goals Initiative Seminar Series in Neuroregeneration.
Huberman’s recent success in regrowing retinal ganglion cells—neurons that carry visual signals from the eye to the brain—suggests neural activity is key to restoring vision. During his talk, he discussed strategies for neuroregeneration of the visual system, revealed what scientists have learned by studying organisms with robust regenerative capacity, and described how medicine is applying this knowledge to someday reverse vision loss in humans.
