Brief description Study of the retina and optic nerve permits evaluation of central nervous system – these structures contain both neurons and glia and are outgrowths of the developing brain. Therefore, eye examination may allow us to study the brain and monitor brain disease and the effect of therapy. This project will determine whether brain disease in a childhood-onset disorder (Sanfilippo syndrome) and treatment of it, can be monitored in this way.
