Our research aims to better understand normal visual processing and damage due to disease. The laboratory has specific interests in the study of glaucoma, migraine, and the process of normal aging. We are also interested in how the brain combines information from multiple senses (for example, vision and hearing) and how aging and sensory damage influence these processes. Our applied aims include developing better clinical tests for the assessment of vision loss (in particular perimetry and ocular imaging), and improving understanding of the consequences of vision loss on performance in natural visual environments and day-to-day tasks. Our current studies use a variety of methods including visual psychophysics, human electrophysiology and human brain and ocular imaging.
