For more than a decade, we have studied the human visual cortex using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). In our studies, we use advanced high-resolution neuroimaging techniques and the state-of-the-art equipment to reveal fine mesoscale neural structures that shape human behavior.
In collaboration with clinicians in Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), we also study the impacts of various neurodegenerative, neuropsychological and developmental disorders on visual perception and the neural mechanisms underlying them.

New findings by our team – reported in the Journal of Progress in Neurobiology – show that there are at least two parallel mesoscale channels within the magnocellular stream devoted to motion and stereopsis encoding.
