Current project

Quantifying changes in cortical connectivity

The project aims to uncover the consequences of human visual system pathologies and abnormalities, e.g. in albinism, on visual system connectivity. The research will involve use of fMRI and DTI techniques to provide a quantitative account of changes to visual system connectivity.
