Program Description: 

Advances in imaging technology have enabled the measurement of retinal structures mediating visual function.  Visual function can be assessed through psychophysical and electrophysiological tests and the relationship between measurements of retinal structures and visual function provides insight into the functioning of the visual system.  The lecture will cover developments in the understanding of structure/function relationships as imaging technology has advanced.
