Section of Neurobiology of the Eye

Research Group of Prof. Dr. Frank Schaeffel in Tübingen, Germany

Methodology

  • gene microarrays,
  • animal models,
  • physiological optics (gaze photorefraction,
  • eye tracking,
  • photokeratometry,
  • low coherence interferometry),
  • psychophysics,
  • drug screenings,
  • immunohistochemitry,
  • laser microdissection,
  • extracellular multielectrode-recording from retina in vitro
