Latest updates

Lieber Lab’s latest work on chronic in vivo retina recording published in Science
The article describes the Lieber group's latest revolutionary approach to recording single-neuron activity of mouse retina in vivo in a chronically stable manner. This work opens up new opportunities to study how retinal ganglion cells connect with other vision-related brain regions and on the development of retinal prosthetics for restoring vision through nonsurgical procedures.
