How do visual predictions affect neural coding? From whole brain systems...
The simple act of perceiving an object in the world is thought to depend not only on incoming sensory information, but also on the brain’s prediction about the object’s likely identity. The aim of this project is to characterise the neural mechanisms responsible for predictive coding of visual stimuli. We will test humans and rodents using analogous visual tasks, and apply novel analytic methods to reveal a common code for perception in whole brain systems and individual neurons.
