Human visual perception exhibits dynamic attributes, such as perceptual hysteresis, in which current perception depends on its recent history. This dynamic behavior is consistent with the neural substrates of visual perception, as a parallel, highly interconnected network of neuronal populations that represents the sensory evidence from the external world. In my master thesis work, I studied hysteresis in motion binding, performing psychophysical experiments (using random-dot kinematograms) and computational models of neuronal populations.
My current Ph.D project deals with perceptual decision-making, as a further approach of studying the neuronal representations of sensory evidence, and how decisions are done based on this evidence. To accomplish this, psychophysical experiments are designed in order to test behavior with different stimuli and conditions, and the computational models are developed, which give insight on how the brain represents the sensory information and implements the decision-making processes, making predictions that can be further tested on subsequent experiments.
