Abstract

Our previous investigations demonstrated that forced exercise provides BDNF-mediated neuroprotection in a light damage model of retinal injury (Lawson et al., J Neurosci 2014). In this study, we hypothesized that voluntary running wheel exercise would preserve retinal structure and function through this same BDNF pathway in the rd10 model of retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
