The main research focus of the lab is the processing of visual information. Research topics include face and object recognition, attention, orientation and visual motion processing.
We are particularly interested in individual differences in visual perception. In addition to studying visual perception in young adults, research in the lab also investigates mechanisms underlying visual processing in healthy aging.
We combine psychophysical techniques with functional neuroimaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG).
