Meet at 6pm in the Glimmer man, 14 Stoneybatter, Dublin 7, Ireland (just off Smithfield square).
We will have a round table discussion hosted by Brid Ryan on;
Investigation of pupil morphological diversity in a model of the camera eye.
The camera eye has evolved across many animal lineages including molluscs, cephalopods and vertebrates. The most diverse element is the shape of the pupil, varying from circular in humans to complex W –shape in Cuttlefish, Sepia officinals.
An understanding of the effect of pupil shape could potentially be used to design biologically inspired optical devices, such as cameras or microscopes, with novel optical properties.
Followed by darts and pool.
