Inner retinal photoreception and ‘non-visual’ effects of light

Current Research Projects

  • Project 1:
    The contribution of melanopsin photoreceptors to thalamocortical vision
  • Project 2:
    The sensory characteristics of visual input to the hypothalamus
  • Project 3:
    The optogenetic potential of unconventional animal opsins

Methodology

  • Transgenic mice
  • In vivo electrophysiology
  • Mouse behaviour
