Faculty Research Areas

Sergei Adamovich
Associate Professor

Neural engineering; rehabilitation engineering; computer-assisted rehabilitation.

Tara Alvarez
Professor

Vision research and neurology by integrating eye movement research with functional MRI; developing new instruments to probe the visual system and new signal and image processing to understand how visual information is processed by the brain.  The application of this work is to help those with vision dysfunctions from the general population and those with traumatic brain injury.
