Visual Perception: From Photon to Neuron

Visual Perception: From Photon to Neuron

September 23, 2020, 5:45 PM - 6:45 PM

Sands Convention Center - TBD

This course follows a photon's journey from the sun to our eyes and finally our brain. You will learn how light the eye and the brain work synergistically to enable us to perceive the world around us visually. You will see how a photon is born and how images are formed by our visual system. Color vision will be explored, along with principles on how the brain organizes and interprets information from light. Interesting optical effects and illusions will be demonstrated. You also will also learn the deleterious effect of excess actinic light exposure to the eye and surrounding skin; both UV and HEV.
