Yonehara group discovers a new function of a specific type of retinal nerve cells and uncovers a nerve network that transmits visual information from retinal nerve cells into the cerebral cortex.

The new study, published this week in Nature Communications, was led by the neural circuitry team at DANDRITE. The researchers’ findings are important for understanding the mechanisms on how visual perceptions arise within the brain. In this article, first author of the paper, PhD-student at DANDRITE Rune Nguyen Rasmussen, sheds a light on their…
