Bennet, Patrick BW


Patrick Bennett is the Canada Research Chair in Vision Science. Using a multidisciplinary approach, Patrick’s research ​explores new methods of treating visual processing problems related to age and disease. Patrick’s current research interests include pattern vision, psychophysics, neuroimaging, and perceptual learning and development. As well as being an Adjunct Member in the Centre for Vision Research at York University, Patrick serves as the director of the McMaster Vision and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab with MIRA researcher Allison Sekular. At the VNC Lab, they aim to understand the limits and functional consequences of compensatory reorganization in older adults, a process where new brain regions are recruited for tasks related to visual performance.
