We are delighted to announce that Dr (!) Noora Nevala has just passed her PhD defense with flying colours! She is the first PhD student from the lab to graduate!

For her PhD, Noora studies the natural visual world of Zebra fish in the context of their visual system and behaviours. Her papers from this time include:

1. Zimmermann MJY*, Nevala NE*, Yoshimatsu T*, Osorio D, Nilsson DE, Berens P, Baden T§. (2018). Zebrafish differentially process colour across visual space to match natural scenes. Current Biology 28(1-15). direct link. (bioRxiv version). pdf.

2. Nevala NE§ and Baden T§. (2019). A low-cost hyperspectral scanner for natural imaging above and under water. Scientific Reports (9) 10799. (biorXiv version). direct link. pdf.

3. Yoshimatsu T§, Schroeder C, Nevala NE, Berens P, Baden T§. Cellular and molecular mechanisms of photoreceptor tuning for prey capture in larval zebrafish. bioRxiv doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/744615. direct linkpdf. (& Neuron, in press).

Congratulations form the whole lab! Thank you also to Jenny Boston (Sussex) and Nick Roberts (Bristol) for serving as examiners, and to Leon Lagnado for chairing the viva voce!
