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. ., focused on myelin purified from optic nerve to study whether it plays an energetic role for the retinal ganglion cells (RGC) axons.

Presbyopia is defined as the loss of power of lens accommodation related to age. It causes an inability of the eye to focus on near objects and images clinically reflected by a gradual decline of near vision. Its prevalence in countries with low and middle income is uncertain because most studies of refractive errors in these countries have been limited to distance vision.
