How We See

View descriptionShare

How do we see? What parts of the brain are responsible for vision? And how can gene therapy restore sight to people living with a visual impairment?  

In this episode of How We’re Wired, join evolutionary anthropologist Dr Anna Machin as she unpicks the neuroscience behind our sense of sight, from the complex computations of the retina to how gene therapy is revolutionising treatment for blindness.   

With special thanks to Peter, Botond Roska, Bernard Schneider, and the Royal National Institute of the Blind.
