Lund Vision Group
The Lund Vision Group is internationally recognised as one of the leading groups in comparative visual science in the world. With 35-40 academics our vision research stretches across the entire animal kingdom, from jellyfishes, insects and crustaceans, to squids and vertebrates. Our speciality is the design and evolution of eyes, how eyes are adapted to different lifestyles and habitats, and how vision is used for controlling behaviour. Our techniques range from optics, electrophysiology and theoretical modelling, to microscopy, molecular biology and behavioural experiments.
