My research uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI),
behavioral and computational methods to study the neural basis of
visual perception
and link brain activations to human perception. It
focuses on understanding what are the cortical representations and
computations that subserve visual recognition, how they are formed
and how they change over time and with learning. We are also
interested in understanding how the visual cortex changes with
development (from middle childhood to adulthood) and how these
brain regions may differ in patient populations with deficits in visual
