Welcome to the Gaze Control lab


The goal of our research is to understand how the brain  controls movement. Accurate movements require complex sensori-motor transformations that integrate current body configuration with high-level goal signals to produce the desired motor command.


To understand such transformations, we examine eye-head gaze shifts which rapidly change our line of sight. These coordinated movements are produced by the oculomotor system, which has traditionally served as an excellent window into brain function. In our lab, we combine neurophysiological and behavioural techniques in both humans and animal models.


A current direction in the lab is to leverage our findings about the oculomotor system toward an improved understanding of how transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) influences neural activity and behaviour.


The lab is headed by Dr. Brian Corneil, and located within the Brain and Mind Institute at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.
