The Coughlan Lab
Imagining and building the tools for a more accessible future in education, employment, and entertainment for people with visual disabilities.
The Gilden Lab conducts research and other activities to acquire new information, create new, devices and develop new strategies to improve the lives of people with low vision or no vision.
Our laboratory studies the conditions which cause monocular or bilateral blindness in infants and children.
Our laboratory studies eye movements to understand basic neural circuitry that moves the eyes for clear vision, and as a tool to probe mental processes that are distinctly human. Our ultimate goal is to understand the substrate of neurological function and dysfunction, leading to development of non-invasive diagnosis and therapy for brain trauma and psychiatric disorders.
