Visual Neuroscience Laboratory


Laboratory Focus

The Barrow Visual Neuroscience Research Laboratory focuses on understanding the neural basis of the human visual experience:

  • How does the electrical activity of a neuron, or a neuronal population, convey the color or brightness of an object?
  • How does the human eye determine the signal from the noise in a series of electrical impulses within a neuron?
  • What type of neural code do neurons use in order to communicate information to each other?
  • How are neural impulses grouped to represent the different features of a visual scene?

We are seeking to answer these questions using techniques such as fMRI, electrophysiological recordings from single neurons, psychophysical measurements and computational models of visual function.
