Summer Vision Course at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York
"STRUCTURE, FUNCTION, AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE VISUAL SYSTEM"
JUNE 21 - JULY 5, 2001
This lecture/discussion course will explore the functional organization and
development of the visual system as revealed by the use of a variety of
anatomical, physiological and behavioral methods. It is designed for
graduate students and more advanced researchers who wish to gain a basic
understanding of the biological basis for vision and to share in the
excitement of the latest developments in this field. Topics will include:
phototransduction and neural processing in the retina; functional
architecture of striate cortex; cellular basis of cortical receptive field
properties; the anatomy, physiology and perceptual significance of parallel
pathways; functional parcellation of extrastriate cortex; the role of
patterned neuronal activity in the development of central visual pathways;
and molecular mechanisms of development and plasticity in the visual system.
This year's lecturers will include: David Williams, Julie Schnapf, Dick
Masland, Dennis Dacey, David Hubel, Murray Sherman, Marty Usrey, Kevan
Martin, Clay Reid, David Fitzpatrick, Tobias Bonhoeffer, Pieter Roelfsema,
Ken Britten, Mike Shadlen, Tony Movshon, Stefan Treue, Barbara Chapman,
Marla Feller, Carla Shatz, Larry Katz, Martha Constantine-Paton, Holli
Cline, Kim McAllister, and more....
