Research Interests
My research focuses on human sensorimotor systems. I use behavioral, psychophysical, and neurophysiological techniques to study how the human brain integrates volition, vision, and memory to generate movements of the eyes. Current projects focus on how spatial memory increases the accuracy of eye movements in complex visual scenes, how cognition alters extremely rapid visuomotor reflexes, and EEG investigation of human saccadic eye movement programming.
