Presentation Description : Many features of retinal structure and function are highly conserved across mammals. However, important and sometimes critical differences arise that provide insight into how evolution has shaped early visual processing. Furthermore, these differences can inform our understanding of visual processing in cortex as well as shape our understanding of how to treat retinal degeneration. I will cover examples from my research as well as results from other labs that illustrate key similarities and differences in retinal processing between primate and rodent retinae.

This abstract was presented at the 2019 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Vancouver, Canada, April 28 - May 2, 2019.
