Research Description

We are interested in how the primate brain use visual information to perceive the world and guide actions. We use a combination of psychophysics, two-photon imaging, electrophysiology and computational techniques in awake, behaving macaque monkeys. Our goal is to study how visual perception is modulated by the animal's cognitive states and task demands at different stages of the visual pathway and via its interaction with the prefrontal cortex.
