Thesis Title

A quantitative measure of visual impairments in patients with schizophrenia.

Research Project

Schizophrenia has been traditionally associated with aberrant thoughts, hallucinations and delusions. These symptoms are also accompanied by a plethora of, less studied, cognitive and sensory deficits.

I am interested in impairments to the visual system in patients with schizophrenia, particularly how patients integrate broadband information in the early stages of visual perception. By understanding how schizophrenia affects the visual system, one of the most extensively studied fields within neuroscience, we can hopefully better understand schizophrenia as a whole.

I primarily use psychophysical and EEG methodology looking at orientation integration in the visual system.
