Neurological Basis of Object and Face Perception

How are shapes and objects represented in the human brain? For humans, object recognition is a natural, effortless skill that occurs within a few hundreds of milliseconds, yet, it is one of the least understood aspects of visual perception. Dr. Grill-Spector utilizes functional imaging (fMRI), computational techniques and behavioral methods to investigate visual object recognition and other high -level visual processes. He r research investigates the underlying representations and cortical mechanisms that subserve recognition, and the relation between these neural processes, and our visual perception of the world.
