The Hurley lab focuses on understanding how energy metabolism is controlled in photoreceptors and how this changes with age. In darkness, photoreceptors consume energy rapidly to offset the leakage of ions across the plasma membrane. Light stops that leakage but it introduces qualitatively different energy demands. Dr. Hurley and his colleagues are investigating how the […]
