The Centre for Vision Research (CVR) at York University is an international leader in human and machine vision research. Uniting researchers from psychology, computer science & engineering, biology and kinesiology & health science, work at the centre is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, rooted in a fundamental research programme that merges techniques in human psychophysics, visual neuroscience and computational theory. Leading-edge facilities include a 3T fMRI scanner, a six-sided immersive virtual reality room, and a wide array of visuo-robotic platforms.
The CVR is home to a rich history of scientific discovery and technological innovation with real-world consequences. Our vision health research tackles the problems of strokes, migraines, brain disorders, autism and visual deficits in Canada's aging population. Vision technology application areas include medical and assistive devices, visual security, search-and-rescue, 3D film, and augmented reality systems used in collaboration with NASA and the aerospace industry.
