Visual Evoked Potentials – Autism Spectrum Disorder

The heterogeneity of autism presents many challenges in understanding the disorder. My research employs objective measures to examine visual evoked potential (VEP) responses of children with idiopathic autism (iASD) and Phelan-Mcdermid syndrome (PMS) to a contrast-reversing checkerboard in both long (60-second) and short (2-second) duration conditions.

Binocular Vision – Stereopsis

My current research with the Applied Vision Institute is aimed at systematically examining stereoacuity with differential activation of the four types of spectrally-opponent neurons.

Global and Local Visual Processing – Autism Spectrum Disorder

 I am interested in using objective measures of eye-tracking, including pupillometry, to examine global and local processing in ASD.
