These findings have a number of important implications for the human eye and vision disorders. First, they suggest humans possess light-sensitive cells, apart from rods and cones, the importance of non – visible light reactions as the entrainment of circadian rhythms and elevating arousal and brain activity. Second, this information how how injuries to the eye to be treated.
The remarkable discovery of a new photoreceptor in the mammalian eye shed new light on an organ that has been studied for thousands of years.. For example, surgeons may want to think twice about removing a damaged eye, still functioning pRGCs has given the important physiological role that these cells play in maintaining the rule time sleep. We must now begin to think about these additional functions of the human eye, and consider not only vision, but also how light sleep, alertness, performance and human health impacts.The at Southampton University is a leading UK of teaching and research organization with a a global reputation for research and science The University has around 20,000 students and nearly 5,000 employees Annual turnover is in the area of EUR 270 million.
