I am interested in visual, spatial and multisensory development. My research is based both at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and at the Psychology Dept at Durham University.
Normal and abnormal development of retinal and cortical vision
How do we learn to combine sensory information sources?
How do we learn to represent spatial locations in memory?
