Neural Basis of Visual Cognition Our visual experience rests not only the perception of visual information but also the efficient deployment of visual attention, working memory capacity, and the precise control of the movements or our eyes. These are fundamental processes in human cognition, and they are impaired in a range of disorders secondary to aging and stroke, neurodegenerative diseases and mental disorders. To elucidate the causes of these conditions and help design better therapeutic strategies, our laboratory investigates the neural circuitry and mechanisms underlying these processes using psychophysical, physiological and pharmacological methods.
