    Reading in mTBI

    People with mTBI often complain about dificulty in reading in spite of normal results in usual eye exams. We investigate this issue by looking at accommodation and reading rate and subjective measurement of reading difficuties for a variaty of reading tasks in normal and mTBI population. 

  • Reading Random Word Sequences (The SKread Test)

    This vision test shows random word sequences that prevent the prediction of upcoming words by linguistic criteria and is simple to score in a clinical setting.

    Reading with the Retinal Periphery

    Typographical features of letters were manipulated in such a way that frequently occurring letter confusions in eccentric viewing happened less frequently.

  • Realistic Hearing Aid Outcomes

    The primary objective of this project is to develop a set of realistic outcome measures that relate to the real-world use of hearing aids.

  • Regressions in Braille Reading

    This project explores regressions (movements to re-read text) in braille reading.

  • Remote Real-Time Description (RRTD)

    Remote real-time description (RRTD) is a simple technique that will allow a describer anywhere in the world to provide real-time description for a

    Robotic Fingerspelling Hand for Communicating with Deaf-Blind People

    A robotic fingerspelling hand would give anyone who can type the ability to communicate with deaf-blind people who know tactile fingerspelling. It also would have the potential to provide computer access to deaf-blind people who do not read Braille.

  • Self-exploration of the Visual Field

    Patients with spots of diminished or no vision (scotomas) often do not realize the nature of their deficit. This technique can help patients to heighten their awareness of scotomas.
