Visual Perception, Awareness, Attention, Brain Imaging, Cognitive Neuroscience
My research seeks to understand the neural mechanisms of visual and cognitive processes by combining brain imaging, psychophysical and computational techniques. Topics under investigation include object and face perception, visual adaptation, cortical plasticity, perceptual grouping, contextual modulation, visual attention and awareness.
