Title: New functions for electrical synapses in the retina
Dr. Schwartz’s laboratory is working at the frontier of systems neuroscience to reveal how the biophysical properties of neurons and the pattern and characteristics of their synaptic connections give rise to a functional neural circuit. He is using new techniques to classify cell types and measure anatomical connectivity, synaptic properties, and circuit output all in the same neurons. He has developed a new theoretical framework to integrate these measurements into a model to predict circuit function given its natural input. processing.

The Bergy Lectures in Vision Science bring renowned basic scientists to lecture at the UW Medicine Eye Institute, and share research advances with our scientists, clinicians and students. This lecture series was established through a generous gift from Ms. Joan Bergy. Read Joan and Gordon Bergy’s story.
