    Summer Vision Course at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York


    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
