Welcome to the Visual Recognition Lab [VisRecLab]
Research in our lab focuses on neural and computational aspects of visual recognition. A major goal of this research is to clarify the relationship between objective image properties and the structure of neural representations in high-level visual cortex. To this end, our work involves neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG) and neuropsychological investigations along with behavioral psychophysics and computational modeling of visual face and object processing. A related line of research concerns the development of novel methods for the analysis and interpretation of neuroimaging data.
Dr. Adrian Nestor is the director of the Visual Recognition Laboratory and an Associate Professor with the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto. He completed his doctoral training in Cognitive Science at Brown University, after which he joined the Department of Psychology and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition at Carnegie Mellon University as a postdoctoral fellow and, subsequently, as a research scientist.
