Functional and Anatomical Remodeling in Human Retinal Detachment

This manuscript by Clairton F de Souza, Michael Kalloniatis, Philip J Polkinghorne, Charles N J McGhee and Monica L Acosta examined retinal remodeling in response to a form of retinal detachment.  Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.  The authors describe the changes observed and note that retinal plasticity is acute and likely occurs quickly enough that it may explain persistent vision loss post-reattachment.  They also later conclude that retinal detachment, particularly with macular involvement is an emergent condition which is a fundamentally important conclusion.
