We study the human visual system to address basic and translational questions pertaining to vision loss, restoration, and rehabilitation. We use a variety of techniques, including structural and functional neuroimaging, psychophysics, computational modeling, psychophysiology, human electrophysiology, and patient-based methodologies to make contributions in the areas of object and face recognition, reading, attention, visual navigation, and remediation of visual impairments. We have extensive expertise in psychophysics, system identification, Bayesian observer modeling, large-scale computational simulation, and structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging.
The laboratory is directed by Professor Bosco Tjan.
Our work is funded by the National Eye Institute of NIH and the National Science Foundation.
