switchBoard - In the Eye of the Observer: Visual Processing at the Heart of the Retina
In November 2017, the University of Bergen hosted the second annual meeting and winter school for members of the Innovative Training Network "switchBoard"
Professors Margaret Veruki and Espen Hartveit from the Department of Biomedicine will gather internationally leading researchers in the field of neuroscience of the retina for a scientific annual meeting. At the winter school, promising early-stage researchers at the pre-doctoral level will receive excellent training in both, neuroscience and transferable career skills. As a public outreach activity, switchBoard members have also collaborated with Vilvite museum and will open an exibit that demonstrates how neurons in the retina communicate and contribute to our visual perception of our surroundings.
Registration for this meeting is closed.
