Bethesda, MD This 2014 FASEB Science Research Conference focuses on recent advances in understanding the neural circuitry that processes sensory information in the retina. The retina is fundamentally important for vision, and its accessibility provides unique advantages for the study of molecular and cellular mechanisms of a sensory circuit in the central nervous system in the context of its natural stimulus.
As a result, retinal neurobiology continues to grow rapidly, attracting researchers from widely varying fields such as biophysics, developmental biology, cognitive science, and cellular and molecular neuroscience. This FASEB conference brings together researchers from across these diverse fields to discuss new ideas and technologies, facilitate interdisciplinary interactions, and promote collaboration.
