Our research covers many aspects of eye movements and visual function, especially the role of visual processing in controlling reflexive and voluntary eye motion. We use a wide variety of eye tracking instruments, but primarily we use dual Purkinje image trackers and high magnification scanning laser ophthalmoscopes for studying very small changes in eye position.
We also use these technologies to examine clinical cases referred by neuro-ophthalmologists for help in diagnosing a variety of neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and cerebellar disease.
