    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative motor neuron disease with retinal involvement

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease that damages the motor neurons, the spinal cord, the cerebellum, and some areas of the brain. However, more recent studies show that it can also affect the visual system, for example, through oculomotor and visual pathways. ALS patients do not usually complain of visual problems, so studies focusing on the visual pathway are scarce. Early work on ALS and the eye was related to oculomotor function and visual pathway analysis, with visually evoked potentials being used to study the disease. Subsequently, some works have appeared that analyze visual function, with tests such ...
