The  Vision Science and Technology Activities (VISTA) Lab does research about the human visual system and imaging systems engineering.  The principal investigator is Brian Wandell.

Our work on human vision include neuroimaging measurements (e.g., fMRI, DTI) and software, behavioral studies (e.g., psychophysics) and simulation (ISETBio). 

The image systems engineering work centers on our physically-accurate simulation tools (ISETCam and ISET3d-V4). These tools are used by companies, research institutions, and universities around the world to evaluate and design sensors, optics, and image processing pipelines. Example applications include smartphone cameras, autonomous devices, biomedical imaging, and AR/VR/360 devices.

We collaborate extensively with groups in Neuroscience, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, and Computer Science.
