Vision & Cognition Laboratory

Alice Cronin-Golomb, Director

The Boston University Vision & Cognition Laboratory focuses on perception and cognition in aging and neurological conditions, with a special focus on Parkinson’s disease. Our research has been presented at national and international professional conferences and published in numerous peer-reviewed scientific journals.

We are called the Vision and Cognition Lab because these are our traditional areas of research. The broader heading of what we do is Neuropsychology. Some people like to split this field into behavioral neuroscience, which focuses on fundamental brain-behavior relations, and clinical neuropsychology, which focuses on assessment and treatment of psychological and behavioral symptoms that arise from neurological conditions or other changes in the brain. We do both in our lab.
