UCL Institute of Ophthalmology


Visual Plasticity Lab

We apply state-of-art imaging techniques, together with computational, physiological, pharmacological, and molecular manipulation, to identify the underlying biological basis of visual cortical plasticity.

The Visual Plasticity Lab is opening in June 2021 at the IoO. If you are interested in joining our team, check the positions we have available

Dr Sun joined the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology as a Lecturer in July 2020. The Sun lab applies in vivo systems approaches to elucidate how neuromodulation regulates information processing and neuroplasticity in the visual cortex. The Sun Lab studies how neuroplasticity in the visual systems is regulated through interaction in the local environment as well as crosstalk between different brain regions.
