Ph.D. Areas: Cognitive and Neural Sciences


Highlights: Vision and Cognitive Engineering. I use vision as a window to the mind. Cognitive engineering is applying that window to facilitate human processes such as learning to read, work, play, and understanding. Please see my homepage for more information and downloads.
