Our laboratory investigates the neural and motor processes of oculomotor control. We have been exploring the complex interactions that control one`s ability to focus and converge the eyes,which have important implications for the remediation of visual motor deficits. We have developed a theory of myopia which predicts the effect of a change in visual optics on neurochemical transmission and scleral tissue growth. We have also been studying the coordinated relationship between eye and head motions during the putting stroke of the beginner and expert golfers. Finally, we are investigating the effect of video-based cognitive training on improving performation in traumatic brain injury patients
