Smith-Kettlewell Brain Imaging Center

Brain image

Our work 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 tests for the diagnosis of eye diseases in infants and adults. The current 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 binocular eye movement control and its disruption by forms of traumatic brain injury.
