The interplay between genetics and the environment is a rapidly advancing area in vision, yet it is a classic question in developmental research. In this symposium, each speaker will present empirical evidence supporting the contribution of genetic and/or environmental factors on specific visual processes, and will collectively discuss how these factors affect human visual development. The symposium has three aims: (1) to provide the opportunity for developmental researchers to come together and engage in collaborative dialogue in a single session at VSS, which has been neglected in recent years, (2) to synthesize a working knowledge of the biological and environmental influences on the functional and anatomical organization of the typically and atypically developing visual system, and (3) to advance the role of development in understanding visual mechanisms. Bringing together prominent scientists as well as young investigators, we anticipate that this symposium will appeal to those who share a common interest in understanding the nature of early vision and the factors which shape its development.
