Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute Seminar "How input from the eye is processed in the brain"

The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute 2012 External Speaker Program present Professor Greg Stuart, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, Canberra.

"How input from the eye is processed in the brain"
Visual information received by our eyes is combined in the brain to form a single view of the outside world. How this occurs at the cellular level is not well understood. In my presentation I will review what we know about how neurons in the brain integrate information.  
As the vast majority of inputs to neurons are made onto their dendrites, I will focus on the active and passive properties of dendrites and their non‐linear properties. I will then discuss how pyramidal neurons in binocular visual cortex integrate visual information in the intact brain 
Where: Monash University, Clayton
When: 12.00pm 3rd July, 2012
