PHILADELPHIA — – Physicists and neuroscientists from the University of Pennsylvania have linked the cell structure of the retina to the light and dark contrasts of the natural world, demonstrating the likelihood that the neural pathways human…

The world is full of darkness, reflected in the physiology of the human retina, Penn researchers say
A major technical advance in astronomy is making it possible for scientists to see individual living cells of the human retina clearly for the first time. This will greatly improve doctors’ ability to diagnose diseases of the retina such as glaucoma at an early stage, when intervention and treatment can prevent blindness.
