Amy Chow completed her Doctor of Optometry degree (OD) at the University of Waterloo and is currently a PhD student.  Amy's work within the HVNL lab focuses on understanding suppression in the context of higher-level cognitive processing, such as attention.  Her previous project examined how attentive tracking of moving dots is differentially affected in the subtypes of amblyopia, which has implications for developing treatments for restoring vision.  Amy uses a variety of techniques ranging from eye tracking, psychophysics and brain imaging to study cortical processing of visual information in humans.
