OPTOG 1675: Visual Neurophysiology

Credits 2.0
This course discusses the neurophysiological basis of vision, from detection of light by the retina to the processing of complex visual scenes by the visual association cortex. Specific topics include basic neuronal physiology, signal transduction, receptive field construction, subcortical and cortical visual pathways, high-order visual processing, neurophysiological techniques for studying the visual system, and visual disorders with a neurophysiological basis.
