Seeing in a New Light

Craig Montell’s UCSB lab has made new discoveries at the cellular and molecular levels about how the eye processes light
October 8, 2015

An animal’s ability to perceive light incorporates many complex processes. Now, researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara have used fruit flies and mice to make novel discoveries about sensory physiology at both cellular and molecular levels that are important for light processing. Their most recent findings, which improve the scientific understanding of the signaling cascade necessary for phototransduction, appear in the journal Cell Reports.
