Barter, registration required
We’ll explore the intersection of the neural anatomy, migraines, and the visions of Hildegard. The eyes are an extension of the brain and play a critical role in non-visual functions. We’ll cover how recently discovered photoreceptors in the retina may impact visual migraines. We’ll start with the basic structure of the eye, its neuroanatomy and connect it to your expediences. Don’t forget to bring sunglasses.
