Professor, Primary Investigator (PI)
My research is on brain plasticity and visual perception. It's a great time to be doing this work, with new technologies allowing us to address age old questions such as: How much can experience change what the world looks like to us? What sets the limits on this plasticity? Can we use it to help with visual disorders?
Samantha (Sam) studies the visual system, with a particular interest in populations who experience altered visual perception. Her work includes studying visual processing and perception in people with psychosis spectrum disorders and a condition called Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS). VSS is a condition where people continually experience flickering specks, like TV static, across their visual field.

My interest is in understanding human visual plasticity, especially how the visual system achieves stability in a dynamic environment, through a multidisciplinary approach.
I study the neural representations underlying perception and perceptual decision making.
My research focuses on understanding how visual impairments, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration, affect the way visual information is processed and how the visual system adapts to impaired vision.
