Adeola N. Harewood

Hunter College
Graduation Status: 


Currently, I'm a candidate for a PhD in Vision Science at the University of California , Berkeley. I graduated from Hunter College in 2012 with a bachelor in psychology. I worked in Dr. James Gordon's Visual Psychophysiology lab where we study the development of the visual pathways. My Honors thesis looks at scores on the Autism Spectrum Quotient (taken by intro to psych students) correlates them with parameters of visual evoked potentials. Last summer I worked in a lab at Vanderbilt University where I used new method to study filtering in the visual system. My research interests are in the biological mechanisms behind perception and how they differ in clinical populations. I am also interested learning more about perceptual training. Next fall I will be attending the PhD program in Vision Science at UC Berkeley.
