Our laboratory investigates the mechanisms of the visual system. Using the mouse retina as a model system, we examine neural networks, synaptic connections, receptors, and voltage-gated channels, and how they contribute to visual signal processing. The laboratory employs state-of-the-art technologies, including semi-automated patch clamp recordings, two-photon calcium imaging, immunohistochemistry, and behavioral studies.
