Dr. Thompson’s research is concerned with human visual cortex development and plasticity. With regard to aviation, he is interested in techniques that can enhance performance on new visual tasks such as those encountered during training programs for pilots and air traffic controllers.

Graduate Supervision:

Dr. Thompson is currently on assignment in Hong Kong and as only able to accept graduate students as a co-supervisor. His graduate students work on a variety of topics relating to human visual cortex neuroplasticity.
