Scientifc Interest

We combine experimental and clinical psychophysics with high-resolution retinal imaging (adaptive optics and OCT), and genetics to study the functional implications of normal and abnormal structural changes in the eye's photoreceptor layer and how this relates to how we see colour, spatial pattern and motion.
