Ganglion Neurons

Summary Information: Ganglion Neurons

Ganglion Neurons: The ganglion neurons are a mass of specialized nerve cells that form the optic nerve. The ganglion neurons transmit visual impulses from the retina in the eyeball to the nervous system and the brain.

In the eyeball, light flows through the cornea and the pupil onto the lens before it is projected onto the visual receptors on the retina. The visual receptors then transform light into electrical impulses that can be transmitted by the ganglion neurons. Conditions that can afflict the ganglion neurons include diabetes, hypertension, and glaucoma.
