University Eye Hospital in Bonn, Germany.

We use simultaneous adaptive optics retinal imaging and micro-psychophysics to target and stimulate individual photoreceptor cells of the Human fovea for precise visual function testing.

For more details on our current research projects, continue reading on the Research pages.

As an introduction to our methods combining adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, AOSLO, and micro-psychophysics, have a look at these book chapters and review articles:
