Research

Stephen Eglen is a computational neuroscientist: he uses computational methods to study the development of the nervous system, using mostly the retina and other parts of the visual pathway as a model system. He is particularly interested in questions of structural and functional development:

Structural development: how do retinal neurons acquire their positional information within a circuit?

Functional development: what are the mechanisms by which neurons make contact with each other, to perform functioning circuits?
