Welcome to McGill Vision Research!

At McGill Vision Research we have the common aim of understanding how the brain processes visual information and enables us to see. The combined expertise of six faculty members, each with their own autonomously-funded laboratories located within one research centre, makes this a unit with a history of strong collaborative research and a world leader in the field of visual neuroscience. Key areas of research include understanding how the adult brain sees motion, form, depth and colour in the visual scene. The clinical areas of research include amblyopia (lazy eye), through which we aim to understand the importance of visual experience in early life for developing normal visual function, and the consequences of disrupting visual function in childhood, which frequently leads to poor vision or amblyopia in adulthood. Our research approaches span different areas of visual neuroscience including human visual psychophysics, animal neurophysiology and optical imaging, computational approaches, human fMRI brain imaging, TMS, and clinical psychophysics.

McGill Vision Research is interdisciplinary and collaborative in nature, with a strong collegiate and interactive atmosphere. It offers an excellent environment in which to train graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, as they are exposed to a wide variety of different techniques and approaches to uncover what are often common principles of brain function. We have strong collaborative links with the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Psychology, Biomedical Engineering and Physiology.
