Dr. Matthew Cavanaugh is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Dr. Cavanaugh received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from State University of New York College at Geneseo in 2012, followed by a Master's of Neuroscience in 2014 and Doctorate of Neuroscience in 2017, both from the University of Rochester. His research focuses on the development of visual perceptual learning interventions to alleviate vision loss associated with stroke-induced damage to the occipital cortex. This work has centered around quantification of visual recovery through visual perimetry, identifying mechanisms and substrates that underlie the restored vision, and the use of attention to enhance training outcomes.
