Laboratory for Visual Neuroethology

The laboratory of Bill Saidel (MIT, 78) is focused on the study of neuronal structures involved in behavior and sensory reception in vertebrates, especially fish. Much work (see research page) has focused on Pantodon buchholzi, the African butterfly fish,  because it lives at the boundary of the air-water interface and consequently, reflects the evolution of simultaneous biophysical constraints for vision in water and air simultaneously.
