New Potential Mechanism for Vision Loss Discovered

Visual cells may not simply die in some diseases, but are mechanically transported out of the retina beforehand


Thanks to laboratory produced human mini-retinas, researchers were able to observe complex changes in the retina as they occur in macular degeneration. This enabled them to discover the so-called cell extrusion as a potential mechanism for neurodegenerative diseases. Visual cells in the human ...

Microswimmers move like moths to the light

Impressive behavior of synthetic microswimmers studied


The Freigeist group at TU Dresden, led by chemist Dr Juliane Simmchen, has studied an impressive behavior of synthetic microswimmers: as soon as the photocatalytic particles leave an illuminated zone, they flip independently and swim back into the light. This promising observation and its ...
