Our lab focuses on understanding how neural processes in our brains result in visual perception and behaviour. We seek to understand how the visual system meets the challenges that the ever-changing dynamic 3D world confronts her with. Therefore we investigate how the visual system functions in lab-based and in less controlled environments (using both static and dynamic stimuli). We use fMRI to study brain activity, MRI to investigate brain structure, psychophysics to evaluate behaviour and compare to brain measures. We study healthy individuals but also developmental cases and brain damaged patients.
Specific research directions in our lab
Linking visual cortex organization to high and low visual functions
High level perception and action skills in lab and dynamic world settings
Face, place, object and form perception
Motion perception including biological (people's) motion perception
MRI and fMRI investigations of the human visual system in the brain
Normative vision, impaired vision (developmental or acquired)
Dependencies between different visual functions
