Welcome to the Visual Cognition & Computational Neuroscience Lab
From a brief glimpse of a complex scene, we recognize people and objects, their relationships to each other, and the overall gist of the scene – all within a few hundred milliseconds and with no apparent effort. What are the computations underlying this remarkable ability and how are they implemented in the brain? To address these questions, our lab combines recent advances in machine learning with human behavioral and neural data to provide a computationally precise account of how visual recognition works in humans.
The Visual Cognition & Computational Neuroscience lab is based in the department of psychology at Justus-Liebig University Giessen. We are also affiliated with the collaborative research center "Cardinal Mechanisms of Perception", research cluster "The Adaptive Mind" and the Center for Mind, Brain and Behavior.
