Thomas Papathomas, Associate Director

The Laboratory of Vision Research (LVR) has three major objectives: to conduct advanced interdisciplinary research in vision, to establish undergraduate and graduate courses in visual perception and related areas, and to serve as a consulting body to New Jersey and national institutions. Research is focused on early vision, such as texture, stereoscopic depth, and motion perception and some higher processing states, such as the role of focal attention in visual tasks. Practical applications of research conducted in the laboratory include the diagnosis and prevention of stereo blindness, invention of new ways to match large databases to the heuristics of the human observer, and the development of image-compression techniques based on the properties of the human visual system.
