I use eye movements as a probe to study the physiology of higher cognitive processes in the monkey. Now the lab is concentrating on the cortical mechanisms of spatial perception and visual attention. Current experiments include the activity of the lateral intraparietal area and prestriate are V4 in free-viewing visual search, the nature of inhibitory mechanisms in the lateral intraparietal area, the role of oculomotor proprioception in cortical processes, and the activity of parietal neurons during saccadic adaptation.
