Duncan, Robert
Director, Office of Undergraduate Research
Assistant Professor
Behavioral Sciences
Areas of Expertise:
  • Neurodegeneration in human glaucoma
  • Individual differences in functional brain topography
  • Cortical contributions to visual and tactile spatial resolution
  • Physiology of motion perception
  • Game-based learning
Dr. Duncan's primary research interests are (1) to study the physiological mechanisms of visually guided behavior in healthy individuals and (2) to develop novel functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques to quantify neuronal, vascular, and metabolic contributions to neurodegenerative visual disorders. Dr. Duncan's current research uses fMRI to compare measurements of neuronal activity and blood flow throughout the retino-cortical pathway to standard clinical measures of visual function. Additional interests include inquiry-based pedagogy and games-based learning for behavioral intervention or social impact.
