inner plexiform layer
What are the three symptoms of vitamin A deficency in the eye?
- Nycatopia (night blindness)
- Xerosis (Drying of eye, Cornea)
- Xerophthalmia (faliure to produce tears)
What is the medical term for night blindness?
what is the medical term for drying of the eye or cornea?
What is the medical term for the failure to produce tears?
What is the main blood supply of the retina?
Central retinal artery
What is the main purpose of vitamin A in vision?
Converts 11-trans retinal back to 11-cis retinal
What is protanope ?
Loss of red cones
What is deuteranope?
loss of green cones
What are the most common types of color blindness?
Protanope (loss of red cones)
Deuteranope (Loss of green cones)
What causes the Na+ channels to close during visual stimulation?
Decrese in cGMP as it is converted to 5GMP by phosphodiesterase?
During phototropic conditions what are most photochemicals reduced to?
Retinal and opsins
During scotopic conditions what does retinal convert back to?
What is the visual pathway?
- 1. optic nerve
- 2. optic chiasm
- 3. optic tract
- 4. dorsal lateral geniculate body
- 5. optic radiation
- 6. Visual cortex
What are the four parts of the old visual system?
- 1.Suprochiasmatic nucleus of hypothalamus
- 2. Pretectal nuclei
- 3. Superior Colliculus
- 4. Ventral lateral genicuate body
What is the main function of the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus?
Regulate circadian rhythms
What is the function of the pretectal nuclie?
- Pupillary light reflex
- Accommodation of lens
How many layers are in the dorsal lateral geniculate body?
What is the function of layers II, III, and V of the LGB?
Receive info from lateral half of ipsilateral eye
What is the function of layers I, IV, VI of the LGB?
Receive info from medial half of contralateral eye
What are the magnocellular layers of the LGB?
Layers I, II
What are the main features of the magnocellular layers (I, II) of the LGB?
- Rapid conduction to V1
- Comprised of large Y ganglion cells
- Black and white only
- Poor, point-to-point
What LGB layers contain small to medium X retinal cells, have a moderate conduction, and Good color / point-to-point.
