Visual Processing Laboratory

Our interdisciplinary research group uses non-invasive electrophysiology, fMRI and psychophysics to study physiology, pathophysiology, and plasticity of the human visual system at the retinal, subcortical, and cortical level.

Methodology

  • Electroretinogram & evoked cortical potentials
  • Functional magnetic resonance imaging at 1.5, 3, & 7 Tesla
  • Psychophysics

Scientific Cooperations
