Methodology for Biomimetic Chemical Neuromodulation of Rat Retinas with the 2 Neurotransmitter Glutamate In Vitro
journal contributionposted on 2018-07-03, 00:00 authored by CM Rountree, JB Troy, L Saggere
This protocol describes a novel method for investigating a form of chemical neurostimulation of wholemount rat retinas in vitro with the neurotransmitter glutamate. Chemical neurostimulation is a promising alternative to the conventional electrical neurostimulation of retinal neurons for treating irreversible blindness caused by photoreceptor degenerative diseases.
