"I was strongly influenced by the eye-movement research labs during my time in residency at CWRU. I adapted my knowledge from exposure to those activities to my interests in visuospatial cognition. The research I conducted during the early years of my academic career was focused on the interface of eye-movements and cognition in studies of visuospatial exploration. Unfortunately, the technologies available in the 1990s made study of cognitive eye-movements very difficult in older adults with cognitive impairment. I retain a strong clinical interest in eye-movements and dizziness as a direct consequence of my time as a resident at CWRU."
