Association of #Gastric Bypass Surgery With Risk of Developing #Diabetic #Retinopathy Among Patients With #Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes in Sweden

Knowledge of the incidence and progression of diabetic retinopathy (DR) after gastric bypass surgery (GBP) in patients with obesity and diabetes could guide the management of these patients. Objective To investigate the incidence of diabetic ocular complications in patients with type 2 diabetes after GBP compared with the incidence of diabetic ocular complications in a …

Early peripheral activity alters nascent subplate circuits in the #auditory cortex

Cortical function can be shaped by sensory experience during a critical period. The onset of the critical period is thought to coincide with the onset of thalamocortical transmission to the thalamo-recipient layer 4 (L4). In early development, subplate neurons (SPNs), and not L4 neurons, are the first targets of thalamic afferents. SPNs are transiently involved …
