Beschreibung des Vortrags: By combining genetics with fluorescent microscopy, we can target and then measure the electrical signals generated by a special type of cells in the zebrafish retina. These cells send visual information directly to the brain. Zebrafish are especially useful in studying vision because they have color vision with many similarities to human vision.
