Prof

Allison McKendrick

 

Allison is Head of Department of Optometry & Vision Sciences, in the Melbourne School of Health Sciences. Her research aims to better understand normal visual processing and damage due to disease.

Specific research interests include the study of glaucoma,migraine, and the process of normal aging. Her research lab has applied aims include developing better clinical tests for the assessment of vision loss; determining methods of preventing visual damage, and improving understanding of the consequences of vision loss on performance in natural visual environments and day-to-day tasks. The research uses a variety of contemporary neuroscience and vision science methods including visual psychophysics, human electrophysiology and human brain and ocular imaging. Allison's research program is highly collaborative with colleagues from ophthalmology, psychology, physiotherapy, neurology and neuroimaging. The lab is supported by funding from the ARC, NHMRC, and industry partnership.
