The broader area of my research is Neuroscience. This is an interdisciplinary field to investigate the brain, drawing on expertise from neurology, psychology, biology, engineering, and computational sciences. An important focus of my work is to understand the brain mechanisms underlying vision and to identify new approaches to improve vision under diseased conditions. In my lab we also investigate how cognitive processes influence visual perception in neurological diseases, such as developmental dyslexia. http://www.optovisionlab.org
