Research Summary

Watching the brain watch

Our ability to comprehend the world and to interact with it relies on our brains’ ability to process sensory signals and transform them into a flexible representation that supports perception, learning, memory, and action. This processing seems effortless. Yet at its core lies an intricate network of nerve cells that extract important information from a continuous stream of redundant, distracting and ambiguous signals (e.g. finding a needle in haystack).
