As humans, we rely on sensory signals captured by our eyes and other sensory organs to perceive, understand, and make decisions about the external world, as well as to communicate with those around us. We study the information processing in the human brain that supports these cognitive abilities through psychophysical experiments, functional brain recordings, and computer simulations. Our labpratory also gains insigjhts into human cognitive processing by comparing it to artificial neural networks. Additionally, we leverage our basic scientific knowledge about human cognitive processing to develop innovative information communication technologies.
