Peter H. Schiller, in collaboration with numerous investigators, has carried out research using psychophysical methods, single-cell recordings, microstimulation and pharmacological manipulations. The research has examined (1) The neural underpinnings of visual illusions and visual masking, (2) Retrograde amnesia, (3) The neural control of eye movements, (4) The functions of the midget and parasol systems that originate in the retina, (5) the functions of the ON and OFF channels of the retina and (6) The functions of extrastriate areas in visual processing. Studies at the present time are engaged in assessing the feasibility of creating a prosthetic device for the blind based on electrical stimulation of area V1 and in specifying the neural mechanisms that underlie depth processing.

Keywords:   visual system, oculomotor system, visual psychophysics, visual prosthesis, retina, visual cortex, frontal cortex
