Perceptual and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab

Research

 

 

 

The goal of our research is to understand how the human brain gives rise to perception and cognition. In order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the cognitive and neural mechanisms that underlie human mental processes, including perception, attention, and memory we combine techniques from neuroimaging (encoding and decoding), vision sciences, and cognitive psychology. This allows us to explore how the brain represents and processes a range of perceptual and cognitive information linking fMRI BOLD responses and psychophysical measures.

 

 

Current projects include:

 

-Neural mechanisms of working memory

-Reconstructing representations of dynamic visual objects

-Information held in foveal retinotopic cortex via feedback

-Cross-modal interactions

-Influence of emotion on perception
