Our lab is interested in the mechanisms that determine the functional properties of mammalian rod and cone photoreceptors. We use a battery of tools, from single-cell and isolated retina recordings, to live electroretinogram and behavior experiments with wild type and genetically modified mice. While the emphasis of our studies is on our daytime photoreceptors, the cones, we are also investigating some aspects of rod phototransduction.
