    Sidney Futterman Memorial Lecture in Vision Science: Seeing where we're going: Retina Direction Selectivity Encodes Self-Motion

    David Berson, PhDProfessor of Neuroscience and Ophthalmology & Vision SciencesBrown University, Providence RI

    November 4, 2016, 4PM, UW Health Sciences, K-069

    The Berson Lab is working to understand what the eye tells the brain about the visual world. They explore the structure and function of ganglion cells, the retinal neurons that communicate directly with the visual centers of the brain. There are roughly two dozen types of ganglion cells, each with functional...

    Joan and Gordon Bergy Lecture: Synaptic mechanisms for visual computation in retinal circuitry

    Jonathan Demb, PhD Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Science & Cellular and Molecular Physiology

    February 12, 2016 4:00pm - UW Seattle Campus, HSB RR134

    The broad goal of the Demb laboratory is to understand how information is processed by the central nervous system (CNS) at the level of specific cell types and circuits. Mouse retina is the model system. The retina has a clear role in behavior, and many of its cell types and circuits are well defined....

    Special Lecture in Vision Science: Evolution of Motion and Color Vision

    Claude Desplan, PhD Silver Professor of Biology, New York University

    Our laboratory focuses on two major developmental questions: The evolution of early embryonic development and the establishment of retinal and brain circuitry that underlies color vision.

    Color vision is achieved through the comparison in the brain of inputs coming from photoreceptors containing photopigments (rhodopsins) with different wavelength specificity.

    Different rhodopsins are...
