Dr. Sara Patterson

Dr. Sara Patterson is a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. David Williams' lab at the University of Rochester studying foveal ganglion cell function with adaptive optics and calcium imaging. She received a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Washington in 2020. Her doctoral work in Dr. Jay Neitz's lab investigated color-coding circuits in the primate retina with serial electron microscopy, single cell electrophysiology, computational modeling and human psychophysics. Her research interests are centered around the goal of linking information processing in retinal circuits to specific roles in visual perception and behavior.
