“Structure and function of the retina”
The importance of determining and interpreting the structures of atoms, crystals, and proteins was established long ago. I will discuss current efforts to extend this paradigm to the brain, focusing on new discoveries concerning the structure of the retina gained through 3D electron microscopy, computer vision, and crowdsourcing. I will also describe how such structural information is helpful for understanding how the retina carries out the first steps of visual perception.
