Ibn al-Haytham was the first to explain that vision occurs when light bounces on an object and then is directed to one’s eyes. And he was also the first to emphasize that vision occurs in the brain, rather than in the eyes.
PhD opportunities 2020
PhD opportunities in the lab are available through two routes: the 4-year PhD programme in Neuroscience and the Leverhulme Doctoral Programme ‘From sensation and perception to awareness’. See project descriptions on those pages. Closing dates for both are in January 2020. Contact Leon if you have any questions.
Two positions funded by the Wellcome Trust are available to study information processing in the visual system of zebrafish. One post would suit a person with a background in the analysis of neural circuits. The second would suit a person with skills in molecular biology. Contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
