Ph.D. Cognitive Psychology, Arizona State University

Research Interests

My research interests are concerned with the mechanisms involved with information processing and perceptual learning in the lower levels of the visual system. Specifically, I am investigating the relation between processing efficiency in the dorsal stream pathway of the human primary visual system and reading ability in normal readers and the reading disabled. Moreover, I am exploring a new methodology to measure dorsal stream processing with a newly designed and manufactured device that will assess a person's ability to discern apparent motion. Once completed I hope to use this new device to target the magnocellular neural systems and determine the range of perceptual and gross motor functions effected by this region of the brain.
