Professor Abramov studies the visual system across the life span, using psychophysical methods to understand the underlying biology. He and his collaborators measure spatio-temporal resolution, binocular functions, color functions, etc.; ask which functions are correlated and thus share neuronal substrates; and test specific groups, such as participants with Down syndrome. Applied topics include illumination of art in museums and identifying stylistic groupings of archaeological artifacts.
