Research Statement

 

Perceptual training on simple visual stimuli has been found to increase perceptual sensitivity for them, while cortical activity and inter-area synchronization have been found to be modified by recently presented stimuli. Using source-localized MEG recordings and psychophysical experiments in humans, I am exploring the connection between these phenomena and investigating the neuronal underpinnings of visual perceptual learning.
