Statewide earthquake drill #greatshakeout... Creepy to hear the civil defense sirens... Reminder of tornadoes in Texas and Cold War drills.
Retinal neuroscientist and photographer. My scientific work involves disorders of retinal degeneration and how those diseases affect the intrinsic retinal circuitry including the implications for rescue of vision via gene therapy, and retinal bionic or biological implants. Other research efforts involve exploring metabolomics for application in understanding physiology and medicine and for drug development.
I can also be found editing Webvision.
