Research Description

The processing of visual information by the human brain is approached by psychophysical experiments, by the study of the primate visual cortex in a collaborative arrangement with the Neurobiology Laboratory at the Rockefeller University, and by models of neural circuits and brain mechanisms. Of particular interest are interactive and plastic changes associated with the response modifications that occur with attention, active perception and learning.
