Close your eyes and imagine a rainbow, what do you see?

For some, a vivid image comes to mind, but for others, they see nothing. This is known as aphantasia, the inability to picture things. Approximately 1-3% of people live with this inability.

Hi everyone, 

 

My name is Sierra Vidaure, I'm currently a junior at the University of Arizona studying computational neuroscience. Previously, however, I was a physics major, so I definitely still have a budding interest in the physical aspects of the brain like neurons and electrical pulses.

Hi! My name is Hannie Lynch and I am a sophomore at the University of Arizona this year. I am studying Neuroscience and Cognitive Science, with minors in both Theater and Computer Science. I am so excited to be a part of the AZ Retina Project group. Educating myself and other interested parties about scientific studies and current research is an activity that I've always loved, but haven't gotten much of a chance to do in college. I'm glad to have a group of other students that are invested in the project and enthusiastic over this opportunity as well!
