The neural network of the mammalian retina is one of the most studied within the central nervous system. However, surprises are still common, with a third type of photoreceptor discovered in recent years.
Aims and objectives. The project will use deep learning (DL) techniques to discover combinations of phenotypic and genotypic features working as predictive risk scores for high-incidence conditions (e.g.
When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment.
