PhD defence ceremony

Visual perception starts in the retina with the transduction of light into neuronal signals. The retina has evolved in such a way that it can process and code this information efficiently before it sends it to the brain. Duco Endeman focuses on the first three steps of this process. He does this by studying fish retinas.
