Retinal degenerations, regardless of the initiating event or gene defect, often result in a loss of photoreceptors. This formal deafferentation of the neural retina eliminates the intrinsic glutamatergic drive of the sensory retina and, perhaps more importantly, removes coordinated Ca++-coupled signaling to the neural retina. As in other central nervous system degenerations, deafferentation activates remodeling. Neuronal remodeling is the common fate of all photoreceptor degenerations. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
