Research Interest
Accurate perception of visual motion is critical for survival. In humans, motion perception relies in large part on binocular combination of signals from the two eyes. But which signals, and how are they combined?

In the lab we aim to increase our understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying motion and depth perception using behavioral experiments (psychophysics), neuro-imaging (fMRI), and computational modeling.
