Research Interests

  • Visual Neuroscience


  • Ph.D. in Physiological Psychology from Northeastern University


Affiliated Campus(es)

  • Brooklyn College

Dr. Kurylo's graduate training included application of psychophysical techniques, enabling precise measurements of perceptual capacities.  Post-doctoral training expanded research on visual processing, and included analysis of perceptual organization in clinical populations.  Dr. Kurylo's research includes both basic scientific investigation, as well as clinical investigations of several patient populations, including Alzheimer's disease, acquired brain injury, schizophrenia, and aging.  Dr. Kurylo has served as Principle Investigator on studies of performance and neural mediation of visual perception, including research on stimulus features and scale, retinal position, as well as priming and masking effects on perceptual grouping.  Dr. Kurylo has developing computer software for control of perceptual measurements, which has been adapted to cognitive rehabilitation for improving visual abilities in schizophrenia.
