Research interests

My research in Visual Perception covers three main areas:
1. How a population of neurons codes for the overall perception of space, time and motion
* The link between individual neuron response and the final population response responsible for the percept.
* The encoding of the duration of time and motion.
* The role of local and global motion in optic flow from forward motion in natural scenes.
2.  How spatial and temporal context changes perception
* The dynamics of adaptation over time.
* The automatic detection visual temporal patterns by the brain.
* The interaction of different visual attributes.
3. The role of eye movements in visual perception
* How eye movements affect motion information.
* What aspects of a visual scene guide our eye movements.
