Howard C. Howland is a Professor Emeritus of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell University. The research in Howland’s laboratory focuses on vision, especially physiological optics. He has worked for many years on the development of refractive state in infants, children and young adults. Other projects have involved emmetropization and eye growth in chickens, measurements of monochromatic high-order aberrations of eyes, compensation for corneal aberrations by the internal optics of the eye, and measurements of accommodation in a variety of animals. Currently he works with undergraduate students to study image processing in humans. He is particularly interested in determining the saliency of different cues in distinguishing separate objects in the visual scene.
