Psychology & Neuorscience

Professor Harvey’s areas of research includes vision and visual perception, psychophysics and human factors. He has made precise measurements of the properties of human perceptive fields using psychophysical methods and compared these fields with the receptive fields of visual cells in the monkey. He investigates the effects of dynamic organization of perception caused by the interaction among spatial elements of the visual stimulus. He has developed rapid and efficient methods for measuring sensory sensitivity in vision and has applied these methods to chemosensory sensitivity testing.
