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