Mapping neural circuits is one of the great scientific challenges of our time, and the next generation of strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders will rely on more detailed circuit-level models. Both the clinical importance of circuit maps and the neurobiological tools required for creating them are more developed in the retina than in any other part of the mammalian brain. Over the four-year course of my proposed research program, support from the Research to Prevent Blindness Career Development Award would be instrumental in establishing a novel, integrated approach combining anatomy and physiology to map the neural circuits of the mouse retina.
