Our research group works towards improving our understanding of how the eye and the brain process visual scenes to perceive colour, form, and movement.
By analysing the wiring diagram of the normal eye, we gain knowledge that can be used in clinical practice and treatment of eye disease.
The way in which nerve cells (neurones) are connected to create vision is poorly understood.
We've helped to show that these aspects of visual performance depend on parallel nerve pathways, which transport visual signals from the eye to the brain. These parallel nerve pathways are specialised to transmit different kinds of signals.
Most recently, our research has focused on:
