Visual mapping and circuits group

We are interested in the molecular control of the development and maintenance of visual circuits. One focus is the establishment of a retinotopic map and the segregation of ipsi- and contralateral projections at the midline to form binocular vision.

In addition, we aim to understand the role of molecules (proteins and RNAs) in the generation of retinal cell subtypes and their specific connectivity. We use mainly the mouse and chick as model systems for our studies on visual development in healthy and diseased states.

Methodology

  • Generation/use of transgenic and gene-targeted mouse lines
  • Genetic- and dye-based in vivo tracing of retinal axons, 2P/confocal microscopy
  • In utero (mouse) and in ovo (chick) electroporations in retina and visual targets

Scientific Cooperations

  • Visual systems group at KCL (Prof. Uwe Drescher, Prof. Ian Thompson, Dr. Martin Meyer)
  • Dr. Juan Burrone, KCL
  • Dr. Kevin Mitchell, University of Dublin
  • Prof. Anne Calof, UC Irvine
