Cortical Topology Underlying The Representation And Analysis Of Visual Scenes (2003–2007)
When we look around us we seem to perceive our visual surroundings fully, accurately and instantaneously. Despite this strong impression, recent research has revealed that none of this is true. Using virtual environments, brain imaging and neural network simulations, this project aims to discover more about what we do see, which part of our brain stores what we see, and how this storage takes place. The work has the potential to influence the design of danger signs, teleoperated and virtual displays and autonomous machines. It should also help motivate new treatments and rehabilitation regimes for stroke victims.''
