Product description

About the Author

Our sense of vision is fundamental to our ability to interact with the world. Additionally, a great deal of our understanding of how the brain functions is based on our knowledge of how it processes visual information. The aim of my research is to further our understanding of the workings of the human visual system, with an emphasis on how various visual pathways interact at different levels in the brain. While I am interested in all aspects of visual processing, my research to date has mainly focused on motion, stereopsis and face processing

Scientifically I am interested in understanding human intelligence and cognition. I tackle this central question from both psychological and biological perspectives (particularly using pharmacological methods). A significant part of this approach is to better understand the cognitive effects of a wide range of pharmacologically active substances ranging from illicit drugs to herbal and nutrient medicines. From a practical perspective I am interested in improving emotional competencies in organizations and in educational settings, particularly primary and secondary schools
