Donald Macleod

Emeritus Professor

Dr. MacLeod's research interests are in how we see: color vision, visual sensitivity, visual localization, and motion perception. Experimental data on visual phenomena and visual performance with human subjects viewing controlled stimulus displays are interpreted in terms of known or hypothetical neural mechanisms in retina or brain.
