Tracing Neurodegenerative Disease

Camera: Leica M9
Exposure: 1/60
Aperture: f/1.7
Focal Length: 50mm
ISO: 800

This is one of our undergraduates Jeebika Dahal, working to annotate in one of our pathoconnectomics databases.  This work is helping us to understand how neural degenerative disease changes wiring, and corrupts processing in neural systems.  We work in retina, but the principles apply to all neural systems with implications for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, epilepsy, and more.
