Celia Foster

Position: PhD Student  Unit: Bülthoff

I am a doctoral student in the Recognition and Categorization group.

 

My doctoral research investigates high-level visual representations in the brain. I use fMRI to record human brain activity whilst participants view images of faces, bodies and objects and perform behavioural tasks. This allows me to explore how information about people and objects is represented in the human brain and which areas of the brain are involved in tasks like identification and categorization.
