In our laboratory we use neurophysiology and behavioral approaches to study neural mechanisms of eye movements and spatial orientation.

Current research focus:

  • How magnetic stimulation through MRI and transcranial devices affects vestibular sensors and cortical brain regions
  • Neural mechanisms underlying balance, spatial orientation and eye movement
  • Mathematical models that describe ocular motor functions and perception of spatial orientation
  • Short and long-term adaptive processes underlying compensation for disease and functional recovery in patients with ocular motor, vestibular and perceptual dysfunction
  • Developing and testing novel diagnostic tools, treatments, and rehabilitative strategies for patients with ocular motor, vestibular and perceptual dysfunction
