Welcome to the ViSci homepages!
Visual Science Group investigates human visual information processing using fMRI
technique and methods of psychophysics (detection & discrimination thresholds,
reaction times and classification images) - combined with computational modelling.
Research topics include brightness processing, form vision, and the coordination of
hand movements by vision. Our recent international peer-reviewed publications are
concerned with the neural & perceptual interactions at the early processing levels
of the visual system, the neural mechanisms by which local stimulus features are
integrated into a perceived global form, and the planning and control of goal-directed
hand movements based on visual information.
For more detailed information of the research activities,
see our publications.
