The senescent vision: dysfunction or neuronal loss?

Figure 1. Aging effects on the visual pathway. In the retina, the continuous growth decreases both the retinal thickness and the density of the different retinal populations (details in [2]), however, although no neuronal loss was observed in aged retinas (except, L/M-cones in pigmented rats), the vision forming and the non-vision forming information, that reaches the brain, are likely affected by aging [7].
