About Jozsef

Dr. Vigh is an Assistant Professor of Developmental Biology. His research focuses on visual signal processing in the retina, specifically, how and why retinal nerve cells communicate with each other via neurotransmitter released from presynaptic neurons and detection by receptors on postsynaptic neurons to form synaptically coupled microcircuits and determine how the retina codes for contrast, color and motion. The Vigh laboratory uses various retinal preparations are investigated through electrophysiological techniques are used to answer how visual signals are processed.
