Neurotransmissions: Visual Computation with Dr. David Ferster


The mammalian visual cortex performs important transformations of the information that is transmitted from the eye to the brain. We sit down with Dr. David Ferster, Professor Emeritus from Northwestern, to discuss his long career studying the cellular mechanisms of these transformations. We also find out what life after academic retirement is like, and how he’s continuing to use his scientific expertise in the private sector to develop new technology for neuroscientists.
