How does the brain work? Answering this question is extremely difficult, so to make things easier, we focus on how the brain processes visual information. The advantage to this approach is that we can exert a high degree of control over what we put into the visual system and examine what the brain does with it at various processing stages.
This approach generally require behavioural experiments involving psychophysics, brain recording techniques (such as single cell recording, EEG, or fMRI), and computational models to put everything together. In the computational vision lab, we use all three of these techniques, but we focus mainly on the computational models. Our research focuses on perceptual learning, reinforcement learning, machine learning, perceptual grouping, machine vision, ageing, and schizophrenia.
