We humans perceive, understand, and make decisions about the external world, and communicate with people around us, based on sensory signals captured by eyes and other sensory organs. We study information processing mechanisms in the human brain that support such cognitive abilities by means of psychophysical/behavioral experiments, functional brain recordings, and computer simulations. We study the (dis)similarities of artificial neural networks to human brain in cognitive processing. We also leverage our basic scientific insights about human cognitive processing to develop innovative information communication technologies.
