Everything you’re seeing right now...

BY DANIEL MINER
@ VOL 8 ON JUL 13, 2017

What you're seeing right now... is really the result of an amazing interplay of multiple layers of procession of light into visual perception.
To many people, vision is just a tool to get along in everyday life. To neuroscientists like Daniel, however, it is a huge field of study with a long history and still ongoing research. Hear - and see - Daniel breaking down the complex processes for you, to shed some light on the function of this elaborate machinery that we are all so much relying on.
