  Current Project

Cortical stability and plasticity after a short periods of monocular deprivation.

Project aims to investigate the fMRI correlates of monocular deprivation and specifically how visual responses to the deprived and fellow eye are affected by this phenomenon. Stimuli will be optimized for using the population Receptive Fields approach for fMRI data analysis

Current research and interests

Neuroimaging, Vision, Cortical plasticity
