Ted Maddess | Founder
Ted did his undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia where he became fascinated with the diverse optical designs of eyes. In 1981 he came to the Australian National University to do a PhD on insect vision but finished up working on nonlinear adaptive mechanisms in mammalian visual cortex. Ted moved to the John Curtin School of Medical Research to carry on with the cortical work but instead exploited a retinal adaptation mechanism to invent a new stimulus for mapping the visual fields (perimetry) for diseases like glaucoma. The resulting patents are used in the FDT and Matrix perimeters. That work caused Ted to work more on human vision in health and disease, much of that done in collaboration with Dr Andrew James. Ted is now part of the new Clinical Suite of the ANU Eccles Institute for Neuroscience (EIN) at the John Curtin School of Medical Research. Ted is Director of a national research body: the ARC Vision Centre. nuCoria Founder Andrew James has worked closely for many years on human vision in health and disease with Ted.
