In the Sinha lab, Butala is focused on researching the differences in the cone phototransduction cascade between foveal and peripheral primate retina. He has developed a broad interest in retinal morphology, circuitry and pathology. His specific interest is in understanding how the phototransduction cascade is modulated by amacrine cells, a unique and diverse population of neurons in the retina. In researching the function of amacrine cells, he aims to uncover novel pathways related to retinal development and disease.
