The focus of the ARM will be on neural processing in the vertebrate retina, including anatomical and physiological approaches. The idea of the ARM is to bring together retina researchers from Asia and overseas to facilitate a wider exchange of ideas and concepts and to invoke stimulating discussions about the complex mechanisms that underlie retinal processing and novel therapies of many eye diseases.
