Research interests

I am interested in how the retina processes visual information via parallel channels. There are known to be 15-20 morphological types of retinal ganglion cells in the mammalian retina, and each type is thought to form an independent channel and have a distinctive structure and function. We record from the retina using a multielectrode array and combine information from various stimuli to quantitatively measure how each cell type encodes different aspects of visual information.
