w e l c o m e

we do high-risk research on hard problems in human vision. our goals include

  • building better models of the intermediate and high-level compositional features that underlie vision
  • exploring how visual processing interacts with cognitive, perceptual and affective processing

we do this using tools drawn from machine learning, computer vision, computer graphics, and neuroimaging, including fMRI, DTI, MEG, EEG
