Our research aims to better understand the way visual information is transferred from the eye to the brain in segregated pathways for colour, motion and shape. We know that the image captured by the eye is sent to the brain as a series of parallel “movies” but the way that nerve cells (neurones) in the eye are wired together to create these movies is poorly understood. By analyzing the wiring diagram of the normal eye, we gain knowledge that can be used in clinical practice and treatment of eye disease.
