Myelin is a lipid-rich substance formed in the central nervous system (CNS) by glial cells called oligodendrocytes, and in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) by Schwann cells. Myelin from both central and peripheral nervous system was shown to express functional FoF1-ATP synthase and respiratory chain complexes that conduct an aerobic metabolism, to support the axonal energy demand. In this work, Silvia Ravera et al. [1]., focused on myelin purified from optic nerve to study whether it plays an energetic role for the retinal ganglion cells (RGC) axons.

Macular hole-related retinal detachment (MHRD) is a special type of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) (occurs when a tear in the retina leads to fluid accumulation) and a common entity in highly myopic eyes. Here, Wenyan Peng et al. [1]., described in details a novel technique to demonstrate the applicability of using perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) – and brilliant blue G (BBG) – assisted technique for peeling of internal limiting membrane (ILM) during vitrectomy (removing small portions of the vitreous humor from the front structures of the eye) with macular hole-related retinal detachment (MHRD) surgery.
