Team "Light, vision & the brain"

Main theme

Our team is interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the regulation of retinal physiology and pathology, and its functional connections with the brain. The group is especially interested in how particular cell properties and cell-cell interactions govern the development, maintenance, survival, function, aging and disease of the retina, and how the retina integrates these processes to deliver information to brain regions controlling the circadian clock and vision.
