Summary: The retina and brain are the highest consumers of energy in the body. These and other compartments of the central nervous system store very little energy and are almost entirely reliant on local mechanisms to maintain enough blood to support usage. A better understanding of how blood vessels respond to changes in local pressure (classical autoregulation) and changes in metabolic demand (neurovascular coupling) helps us to understand how the failure of autoregulation might lead to retinal disease.
Learning Objective: To better understand the mechanisms that underlying retinal vascular autoregulation.
Assessment: There are no MCQS with this lecture.
