Research Summary

I am a postdoctoral fellow funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft; DFG) and based at the Department of Experimental Psychology. My research focuses on understanding how the brain adjusts to sensory experience. The nervous system adapts to the environment over a wide range of timescales. This plasticity has been parcelled into distinct categories of study (i.e. adaptation, perceptual learning) each emphasising distinct timescales and phenomenology. My principle aim is to investigate how the visual system adapts to changes in the visual environment at multiple timescales and to understand whether distinct forms of plasticity are mediated by the same or different neuronal mechanisms.
