Michael R MacAskill


I am the Research Director at the New Zealand Brain Research Institute and a Research Fellow at the University of Otago, Christchurch.

My main research interest is the control of fast eye movements (saccades) in neurological disorders. Much of my work is currently conducted within a larger multidisciplinary research programme, where we use MR brain imaging, neuropsychological testing, and eye movement recordings to monitor the progression of cognitive impairment in Parkinson’s disease.
