Dr. Phillips

Dr. Phillips is interested in vestibular and oculomotor development, testing, and treatment. His laboratory has developed an implantable prosthesis to treat vestibular dysfunction, and is studying the device with behavioral and neural recordings in monkeys. Both eye movements and visual and rotational stimulation are recorded.

Infant monkeys exposed to perinatal asphyxia are also being investigated. Phillips’ lab also studies a variety of clinical populations, including children with sensorineural hearing loss, autism, infantile nystagmus, posterior fossa tumors, and craniofacial abnormalities.  The new vestibular prosthesis that Phillips and his colleagues have developed may have a significant impact on the lives of children with combined vestibular and visual loss.
