Our lab is concerned with how we see depth in a three dimensional scene based upon information contained in the two dimensional retinal images. We are interested in how the brain extracts information from the slightly different perspective views of the two eyes to yield a three dimensional view (stereopsis).
The lab is also working on mechanisms controlling binocular eye movements. Recently we have been focused on how the eyes maintain their alignment and move in a coordinated fashion to various objects in 3-D space. The oculomotor system is able to adjust the coordination of the two eyes to compensate for image distortions caused by spectacles and for injury to the extraocular muscles or their sources of innervation.
