We welcome David M. Berson, PhD, Sidney A. Fox and Dorothea Doctors Fox Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Chair of Neuroscience at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, as he presents: “Retinal Circuits For Visual Reflexes”

 

About Dr. Berson’s Research:

The nervous system extracts and encodes different features of the visual world to accomplish specific tasks. Spotting a familiar face in a crowd requires different information than hitting a fastball or judging the ripeness of fruit from its color. Different “channels” of visual information emerge already at the retinal level and are then routed to distinct visual centers of the brain. We seek to understand how retinal cells and circuits process and filter visual information in specific channels, and how these signals are used by the brain to shape appropriate visual behaviors.

Join us in welcoming John D. Shepherd, MD, Director of the Weigel Williamson Center in Omaha, Nebraska, as he presents:

“Recognizing and Addressing Depression in the Low Vision Patient”

 

Register for one of the two 20-minute presentations on Friday, May 31 by completing the form below by May 20th.

 

ABOUT THE CENTER:

The Weigel Williamson Center celebrated 10 years of service in 2018 and has served over 5,000 patients at the only low vision house situated on an academic medical center campus. It has grown from one doctor and one occupational therapist at a single location to multiple providers at multiple locations in the region.
