Dr. Olavarria

Dr. Olavarria studies the development of organized neural circuits (topographic maps) in the visual cortex. He has shown that normal map development requires retinal input during a well-defined critical period. His goal is to understand the nature of the retinal influences (neural activity or chemical cues) that specify the topography of maps, as well as the cellular and molecular processes that regulate the timing and duration of this critical period. He is also interested in studying how anomalous factors, such as epilepsy, can affect map development.
