The Eye as A Vertically Integrated Window into the Brain

Weekly Seminar | Not Open to the Public
Who Should Attend: 


Our work has been principally focused upon the premise that the eye is the front of the brain, and that the visual system can be utilized as a vertically integrated neuroscience system for purposes of dissecting mechanisms of neurodegenerative disease states, the principles of which can then be translated into therapeutic trials aimed at the detection and monitoring of protective, preventative, performance enhancing, and even restorative properties of novel neurotherapeutic agents.
