Position: Guest Scientist  Unit: Alumni Scheffler Logothetis

My research focuses on visual perception. I study how the poor visual information that enters our eye is being transformed into our actual visual experience of the world. To answer this question I use visual illusions, brain imaging and non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as TMS and tDCS.

Recently I also got interested in the methodology of high-resolution structural and functional MRI of the human brain (at the magnetic fields >3 Tesla), hoping that better spatial resolution will help us better understand the mechanism behind higher-level visual functions.
