I am interested in the work done by the eye and the brain to analyse the visual world and support visual perception. I’m particularly interested in how visual perception reflects the basic properties of networks of nerve cells at each level of the visual pathway. My main interests are two-fold. First, I want to understand, at the level of individual neurons and groups of them, how sensory signals interact with internal representations. Second, I want to use our substantial knowledge of the visual system to develop model systems with which we can gain insight into more complex brain functions.
