ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Professor Wilkins obtained a doctorate from Sussex University for work on human memory. He thenspent two years at the Montreal Neurological Institute (1972-1974) where he became interested inepilepsy. He returned to England to work as a research scientist at the Medical Research Council Applied Psychology Unit, Cambridge, from 1974 until the unit was disbanded in 1997, when he joined the University of Essex. He spent ten years studying the mechanisms of photosensitiveepilepsy and techniques for treatment and this study broadened into more general interest in visionand health. He has been responsible for several innovations, including a clinical test of vision; thefirst controlled trial showing that fluorescent lighting is detrimental to health, and the invention of thefirst scientifically designed system for ophthalmic tinting, and its introduction into optometricpractice. He has a wide range of research interests including the neuropsychology of vision, readingand colour, photosensitive epilepsy, migraine, typography, human memory and attention. Theseinterests have helped him formulate a unified theory of Visual Stress, detailed in a book with thistitle (Oxford University Press, 1995). He is currently head of the Visual Perception Unit at theUniversity of Essex where he is co-coordinating research on the use of coloured filters in thetreatment of reading difficulties and visual stress.
