My laboratory investigates vision and the brain. Studies mainly involve psychophysical experiments with human observers. Current projects include the role of cognitive mechanisms in the recovery of three-dimensional shape from monocular or binocular 2-D retinal projections, the study of excitatory and inhibitory neural influences on mechanisms of motion perception, auditory/visual interactions, and the development of biologically relevant computational models of human brain function.
