Event Description:So much of our experience is visual, it can be surprising to learn that light controls fundamental aspects of physiology and behavior without impinging on awareness. We study the neural pathway that mediates this subconscious sight by applying biophysical techniques to genetically-engineered organisms. Our broad goal is to understand how external signals interact with internal states to generate appropriate action. Dr. Do is an Assistant Professor of Neurobiology at the F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School. His research centers on biological mechanisms that are important to health and disease.
