Our sense of sight is our window into the world. Advances in neuroscience are rapidly unlocking the secrets of vision and paving the way new therapies for blindness and other vision disorders. In their Front Row lecture, Hollis Cline, PhD, and Kirill Martemyanov, PhD, co-chairs of the department of neuroscience at Scripps Research, will present on their cutting-edge vision research. Among other topics, they will discuss recent findings on how molecules in the retina turn light into information, how visual sensations shape brain development, and how deciphering how our visual system works could lead to new ways to detect, prevent, and correct vision impairments.
