Our research interests include brain plasticity in sensory processing associated with amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (misaligned eyes). We also study visual development of infants and children in clinical populations.
High concentrations of unconjugated bilirubin are neurotoxic and cause brain damage in newborn infants. However, the exact level of bilirubin that may be neurotoxic in a given infant is unknown.
Preterm infants are at high risk of visual and neural developmental deficits. We used swept parameter visual evoked potential (sVEP) to determine whether premature birth alters visual cortical function.
