Sight & Science: Vision Research from Diverse Fields
Vision-related translational science ranges from investigating how mechanical and signal transduction processes give rise to sight, to examining how humans synthesize spatial and descriptive information about our external environment, and to improving visual performance under limiting conditions.
By its nature, the realm of vision science spans a variety of disparate fields such as physics, neuroscience, physiology, psychology, computer science, engineering, architecture, communication, education, and medicine. Researchers, clinicians, and scientists from any field of vision science are encouraged to apply.
