Visual Neuroscience Lab
We are the Visual Neuroscience Lab at the Cognitive Psychology department at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, led by Tomas Knapen. Our lab is also based at the Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences.
We perform imaging, psychophysics, and eye movement experiments to investigate how the brain represents information - with a focus on vision. We are principally interested in how processing of sensory information changes under the influence of cognitive factors such as attention and reward. For more information on the topics we research, please see the science section, or click any of the topics below.
News from the lab:
Our lab received an NWO-CAS grant, for an upcoming collaboration with the Beijing lab of Peng Zhang and Sheng He.
Our lab has recently published a couple of papers on pupil responses and fMRI of eye-movement influences on visual cortex.
