The Computer Vision & Computational Neuroscience Laboratory supports research in the areas of neural modeling, computational neuroscience, computer vision, robotics, and fMRI imaging. The major question being addressed is the nature of representation of the visual world in the brain, in terms of observable neural architectures such as topographic mapping and columnar architecture. The application of novel architectures for image processing for computer vision and robotics is also a major topic of interest. Applications of fMRI imaging to measuring the topographic structure of human primary and extra-striate visual cortex are a recent focus of research.
