Our group is working on retinal signal processing. We aim to understand the functional role of ion channels, ion transporters and gap junctions in the retina. Also, we work on the functional role of individual retinal cell types.


  • Extracellular or intracellular recordings of light responses from retinal neurons,
  • morphological analysis of retinal circuits using confocal microscopy
