Research

Overview

Investigating the extent to which category-selective responses in the ventral visual pathway can be explained by a sensitivity to low-level image properties.

Projects

Category-selective responses in the ventral stream have led some researchers to conclude that this region of the brain represents semantic properties of the visual stimulus.  My research asks whether these responses could instead reflect a tuning the low-level image properties common to different object categories.  I will be using a combination of neuroimaging and behavioural techniques to explore how information is represented in this region of the brain.
