Neural computations, circuits, and synaptic physiology of the retina.

My lab is focused on understanding how parallel neural circuits in the retina contribute to our visual perception of color, form, and motion.  We are currently studying the retinal circuits that contribute to tri-chromatic color vision and motion vision.
