As Nature Neuroscience celebrates its 25th anniversary, we are having conversations with both established leaders in the field and those earlier in their careers to discuss how the field has evolved and where it is heading.

Her work has illuminated mechanisms of visual system development and plasticity and has focused more recently on synaptic pruning mechanisms.
