Donnell J. Creel

Research Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

Neurobiology of Disease





B.A. 1964, M.A. 1966, University of Missouri, Kansas City; Ph.D. 1969, University of Utah


Clinical visual electrophysiology

Dr. Creel is interested in the role of melanin pigmentation in the development and function of the visual and auditory systems. Research efforts include visual and auditory anatomical studies, scalp-recorded evoked potentials in humans, and psychophysical studies. Clinical research interests center around the application of evoked potentials and electroretinography.
