Research Interests

My computational neuroscience laboratory investigates how the visual system encodes information about the natural world. We are also interested in how the information represented at various stages of visual processing is modulated by attention, learning and memory. Our main experimental tools are functional MRI and electrophysiology; our main theoretical tool is nonlinear system identification (‘reverse engineering’).
