Fear of retaliation
When bystanders become witnesses of a social norm violation, they will confront the culprit -- all the more if the violation is severe. Although this appears to make sense, in fact the opposite is true. The more severe the norm violation, the more reluctant bystanders will be to reprimand the person who committed it. Their fear of retaliation is too great. (2016-11-02)

Is more, better? Finding the balance between nutritional supplements and eye health
In the past decade, ophthalmologists have been prescribing nutritional supplements to be taken daily to prevent or slow vision loss from age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Now, using nutritional supplements for eye health has become more common. But does increasing the recommended dose increase protection? A case report appearing online in JAMA Ophthalmology from the Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah reveals what can happen when a patient takes more of a supplement than their body needs.

Researchers find stem cells in normal and Fuchs corneal endothelium
Researchers from Massachusetts Eye and Ear have, for the first time, identified rapidly proliferating cells (known as 'neural crest-derived progenitor cells') in the corneal endothelium of specimens from normal corneas and from corneas with Fuchs' Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy (FECD), a condition in which the cells responsible for keeping the cornea clear die prematurely -- often leading to blindness. (2016-10-03)

Brain diseases manifest in the retina of the eye
Diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) may manifest as pathological changes in the retina of the eye. Research from the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) shows that retinal changes may be detected earlier than brain changes. Findings from mouse models suggest that eye examination could be used as a noninvasive screening tool for human brain diseases. (2016-10-03)

Role identified for key protein in regeneration of damaged newt retinas
University of Tsukuba-led researchers have identified a role for the Pax6 protein in deciding the fate of newt retinal cells. Normal newt retinal pigment epithelium cells enable retinal regeneration following injury, but those lacking Pax6 were unable to do so. Instead, they behaved like cells in human retinas by transforming to heal the wound but failing to renew the retina. These findings may help control the mechanisms involved in retinal injury, leading to novel treatments. (2016-10-02)

Researchers find evidence of 'hidden hearing loss' in college-age human subjects
Researchers from Massachusetts Eye and Ear have, for the first time, linked symptoms of difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments with evidence of cochlear synaptopathy, a condition known as 'hidden hearing loss,' in college-age human subjects with normal hearing sensitivity.

Steroid use linked to worse outcomes in Lyme disease-associated facial paralysis
Researchers from Massachusetts Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School have found that patients who were prescribed corticosteroids as part of treatment for Lyme disease-associated facial paralysis had worse long-term outcomes of regaining facial function than those who were prescribed antibiotic therapy alone. Based on these findings, which were published online today in Laryngoscope, the researchers urge caution in prescribing corticosteroids to patients with acute Lyme disease-associated facial paralysis.
