Ubadah Sabbagh conducts research with Michael Fox, Ph.D., to understand how we make sense of the visual world around us. His work with Fox studies the circuits between the retina and the brain using molecular and computational tools. How do they wire up? What brain cells get this input from the eye and how do they process it? The lab been producing a novel account of an under-explored structure in the brain known as the vLGN. This brain region processes non-image-forming visual information (vision that is not consciously perceived). The lab revealed the vLGN to be a highly organized region with stratified layers of molecularly distinct cell types. This has implications for establishes parallel pathways for an otherwise unsegregated retinal input.
