Dr. Szonya Durant

I started my MRes at CoMPLEX in 1999, and was awarded a PhD in 2004. During the course of my PhD at UCL, I worked on a model of spatial localisation and motion perception as well as investigating these aspects experimentally. I have continued to build on this work and linked it in with my other areas of research.

My research in the area of Visual Perception covers three main areas: the interaction between separate visual aspects of the scene, how a population of neurons codes for the overall percepts of orientation and direction of motion and the mechanisms involved and the role of adaptation in neurons. I have used psychophysical tools, computational models and have recently begun work on neuroimaging at Royal Holloway University London, where I am now permanently employed.
