Research/Clinical Interest
Title
Functional organization of retina and visual cortex
Description
We use adaptive-optics retinal imaging to deliver visual stimuli to single photoreceptors in the living eye, with the aim of revealing how sensory signals are combined in the retina and the brain. Techniques include neurophysiology in animals and human psychophysics.
