Research

Overview

Understanding how visual information is represented in the ventral visual brain

Projects

My research explores the relative contributions of categorial and low-level visual information to the activity of the ventral visual stream. I am also interested in the neural correlates of the deficits in face perception observed in people with developmental prosopagnosia and the extent to which they ca be explained by low-level features. To address these questions, I will be using a combination of neuroimaging and behavioural methods.
