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...
