DakinLab

The lab works on spatial vision using a combination of visual psychophysics, computational modelling and functional brain imaging in various clinical and unaffected populations.

Our research interests centre on: vision in people with neuropsychological disorders (such as schizophrenia) and eye disease  (e.g. glaucoma), assessment of vision in children, and in several areas of basic visual neuroscience e.g. face perception and crowding (the breakdown in our recognition of objects presented  in clutter).

Methodology

  • Psychophysics,
  • computational modelling
  • fMRI
