Cracking the neural code of human object vision

Project description

Unveiling the neural code of visual object recognition

We visually perceive the objects in our visual world effortlessly and speedily, allowing us to interact with the world. However, the neural dynamics responsible for object recognition remain unknown. The EU-funded CRACK project will address this fundamental issue through an unprecedented approach. It will combine brain imaging methods, advanced multivariate analysis techniques and state-of-the-art computational modelling to unveil the working of the visual brain. Researchers will study neural activity and unveil the flow of information between visual regions with precision in both space and time. They will further investigate how brain activity guides behaviour through which we interact with the world.
