PhD student at BrainInnovation: “Changes in cortical representations due to the learning of new object information
My research focuses on the development and use of innovative fMRI data analysis techniques for the study of visual perception. Ultra-High Field fMRI (7T, 9.4T) and Computational Neuroimaging are my main interest areas.
My main PhD project is about using Population Receptive Field estimation and Representational Similarity analysis to see how the representation of a stimulus in the ventral cortical visual areas (e.g. FFA) changes after perceptual learning.
