Welcome to Hood Visual Science Lab

Welcome to the Hood Visual Science Lab at Columbia University. The lab is led by Donald C. Hood, James F. Bender Professor of Psychology and Professor of Ophthalmic Science (in Ophthalmology) at Columbia University. Our research examines the physiological bases of both normal and abnormal visual processing. Using behavioral (psychophysical),  electrophysiological, and imaging techniques, we study the vision of both normal individuals and patients with diseases of the retina or ganglion cell/optic nerve.
