1990 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Eye movement, Superior colliculus, Saccadic masking and Saccade. His work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Extraocular muscles and Anatomy. His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Midbrain and Supplementary eye field.
David L. Sparks usually deals with Saccadic masking and limits it to topics linked to Sensory system and Somatosensory system and Receptive field. His Saccade research includes elements of Visual perception, Visual system and Brain mapping. His Visual system study which covers Target acquisition that intersects with Gaze.
David L. Sparks mostly deals with Neuroscience, Superior colliculus, Eye movement, Saccade and Saccadic masking. As a part of the same scientific study, David L. Sparks usually deals with the Neuroscience, concentrating on Anatomy and frequently concerns with Nucleus. His Superior colliculus research includes themes of Electrophysiology, Midbrain, Stimulus, Primate and Superior Colliculi.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Communication, Extraocular muscles, Paramedian pontine reticular formation and Gaze in addition to Eye movement. His study in the field of Saccadic suppression of image displacement also crosses realms of Population. In the field of Saccadic masking, his study on Supplementary eye field overlaps with subjects such as Signal.
David L. Sparks focuses on Neuroscience, Eye movement, Saccade, Gaze and Communication. Many of his research projects under Neuroscience are closely connected to Muscimol with Muscimol, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His research in Superior colliculus intersects with topics in Feedback loop, Control theory and Electrophysiology.
David L. Sparks combines subjects such as Extraocular muscles, Paramedian pontine reticular formation, Sensory system and Motor control with his study of Eye movement. The Saccade study combines topics in areas such as Visual field and Computer vision. His Gaze study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Head, Cognitive psychology and Stimulation.
His main research concerns Neuroscience, Saccadic masking, Eye movement, Superior colliculus and Saccade. In his papers, David L. Sparks integrates diverse fields, such as Neuroscience and Muscimol. His studies deal with areas such as Control, Nerve net and Brainstem as well as Saccadic masking.
His Eye movement research incorporates elements of Visual field and Electrophysiology. His Superior colliculus research incorporates themes from Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Vergence and Supplementary eye field. The various areas that David L. Sparks examines in his Saccade study include Superior Colliculi and Feedback loop, Control theory.
