My research centers on human visual neuroscience and computational vision, especially in the areas of stereoscopic depth, form, symmetry, and motion perception in adults, and the development of noninvasive tests for the diagnosis of eye diseases. A longterm focus of the lab is on theoretical, psychophysical, oculomotor and fMRI studies of the integration of cues to the full scope of 3D depth perception. We are particularly interested in the normal capabilities of binocular eye movement control and its disruption by forms of traumatic brain injury. Another current concern is the development of a comprehensive model of the human electroretinogram (ERG) for enhanced diagnosis of eye diseases and traumatic brain injury sequelae.
