Abstract:
The retina of the mammalian eye is able to function over a large range of light levels by employing complex adaptive and circadian mechanisms. These allow this tissue to both adapt to the presenting light conditions and anticipate daily changes in light intensity that defines the solar day. This thesis forms a body of work addressing this research area, examining the influence of retinal clocks on aspects of retinal physiology, and the mechanisms behind these rhythms.
