Research interest

My current research interests lies in deciphering the contribution of the rods, cones and melanopsin-ganglion cells in the computation of non-visual responses at the level of the human brain. At the retinal interface, signals coming from the classical photoreceptors and melanopsin cells interact to elicit a wide range of responses in the brain, including crucially: the circadian system, sleep architecture, temperature regulation, hormonal levels, cognitive performance and pupillary eye reflex. This work articulates around the interplay of the neural properties of these photoreceptors in the retina with the aim to model the non-visual brain.
