Dr. Bauer focuses her research on understanding how the visual dysfunctions observed in cortical/cerebral visual impairment (CVI) relate to brain structure and function. During her doctoral studies, she utilized multi-modal neuroimaging techniques in the development of potential biomarkers for monitoring the progression of Alzheimer's disease and mild cognitive impairment. Currently, she applies advanced multimodal MRI techniques to study how the brain adapts vision loss due to both ocular and cerebral causes. Her recent work concentrates on the relationship between brain structure and function with visual processing abilities in individuals living with visual impairment due to CVI.
