                       UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, DAVIS

    The Graduate Program in Neuroscience at the University of California,
    Davis offers interdisciplinary training in areas spanning molecular to
    cognitive neuroscience. Faculty from several departments (Psychology;
    Neurobiology, Physiology & Behavior; School of Medicine) draw upon a
    combination of psychophysical, neurophysiological, and computational
    approaches to vision. The Center for Neuroscience also offers
    postdoctoral fellowships via an NIH sponsored training grant.
    Research facilities in the Center for Neuroscience and elsewhere on
    campus provide an excellent environment for exploring vision-related

    Vision-science faculty include:

    Marie Burns - photoreceptors, molecular mechanisms of transduction
    Ken Britten - extra-striate visual cortex, motion perception
    Leo Chalupa - retinal neurophysiology, development
    Barbara Chapman - visual development, cortical maps
    Andy Ishida - retinal ganglion cell physiology, synaptic integration
    Ted Jones - thalamo-cortical interactions
    Bruno Olshausen - computational models of vision, efficient coding
    Robert Post - spatial orientation and motion perception, eye movements
    Marty Usrey - retina/LGN/V1 physiology, neural circuits and spike timing
    Jack Werner - color vision and aging
    Martin Wilson - synaptic transmission in the retina
    Ewa Wojciulik - visual attention, functional imaging

    *** Application deadline for fall admissions is January 15, 2001. ***

    The application deadline may be nominally met by submitting an online
    application and fee, along with a form letter, via the web site:

    Davis is located approximately 15 miles west of Sacramento, the state
    capital. It is a unique community with miles of bicycle paths and
    beautiful parks, and in close proximity to the Napa and Sonoma wine
    country, the San Francisco bay area, Lake Tahoe and the High Sierra.
