Dr. Kaushikaram Subramanian’s research addresses the optical properties the vertebrate retina, an incredibly cell-dense tissue with the photoreceptors located on its back. Rod photoreceptor nuclei, that account for near 80% of all nuclei in the mouse retina, are known to be inverted in all nocturnal mammal. His investigations elucidate how this nuclear architecture conveys improved image transmission in the mouse retina, ultimately providing enhanced visual perception under low light conditions.
