Before forming the Computational Neuroscience and Visual Perception labpratory, I worked on human visual perception of faces, symmetry, depth, motion and visual crowding. Using a wide range of methods such as behavioral testing, eye-tracking, fMRI, EEG and MEG made me keen on the comparison of imaging techniques and response types during various sensory tasks.
