Overview

Vision begins with light waves exciting photoreceptors in the eye. This primary pattern of excitation is relayed to the brain, but does not correspond directly with our perception. Rather, through a succession of processing stages the brain constructs a representation of what lies outside, transforming patterns of light into objects we can use, people we can recognize and places we can go. My research interests are based around understanding the brain processes that transform patterns of light into our perception of the visual world.
