Director: Attention and Perception Neuroimaging Laboratory

My research employs functional MRI, psychophysics, and computational modeling to investigate the mechanisms underlying visual perception and cognition. My laboratory performs experiments to identify the human brain circuitry which support different visual tasks, and to study how different cognitive factors such as attention modulate these circuits. Modeling work investigates the computational mechanisms at work in these circuits.
