Anterior Cerebral Circulation Infarction and Retinal Ganglion Cell Degeneration – Corrected Proof

We congratulate Park et al on replicating our group's work demonstrating that transsynaptic retrograde degeneration (TRD) of retinal ganglion cells occurs after occipital injury. Their paper is interesting in that it seems to show this process occurring not only after occipital injury, but also after infarction of other areas of the brain. It would be of major theoretical importance if retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thinning could be seen after damage to anterior brain areas with no damage to the pre- or postgeniculate visual pathway.
