Is our retina really upside down?



Congratulations Dr. John!

We are most delighted that John Bear has just passed his PhD viva!

For his thesis, John investigated spectral processing in zebrafish retinal ganglion cells.

Thank you to Ryan MacDonald and George Kemenes for serving as examiners, and Kevin Staras for chairing!
