Research Interests - Description

Professor George K. Shoane has published extensively (under the Cantonese phonetic spelling of his last name, Hung) in the areas of experimentation and modeling of the human accommodation and vergence systems, as well as the dynamic interactions between saccade and vergence.  He developed a model of myopia (nearsighteness) development that has clarified a field which had been clouded in controversy over the past three decades.   He is currently investigating the application of these models in the clinical environment with the aim of quantifying the remediation of clinical deficits.   In addition, he was the first to investigate the dynamics of eye and head movements during golf’s putting stroke and has provided important quantitative insights into the effect of grip style on eye and head movements during the putting stroke.  Finally, he has published a book titled Models of Oculomotor Control (World Scientific, 2001), and co-edited three books titled Models of the Visual System (World Scientific, 2002), Biomedical Engineering Principles in Sports (Kluwer Academic/Plenum, 2004), and Biomedical Engineering Principles of the Bionic Man (World Scientific, 2010).
