Chronic IOP elevation affects cerebrovascular reactivity in murine visual cortex, linked to widespread brain changesMay 2nd 2022
Investigators from the New York University Grossman School of Medicine presented data at the ARVO 2022 annual meeting that concluded mapping of the relative cerebrovascular reactivity in the murine brain showed widespread brain changes resulting from the chronic IOP elevation and demonstrates vascular involvement in glaucoma both within and beyond the primary visual pathways.
