The first steps of vision occur in the retina where dozens of different neural circuits extract different features from the visual scene. In my talk, first, I will discuss how the neural circuit asymmetry required for detecting directional motion is set up during development. Second, I show how basic understanding of the structure and function of retinal circuits in combination with viral and molecular tools can be used to design rational optogenetic therapies for the blinding disease retinitis pigmentosa.
