Neural and computational mechanisms underlying multisensory decision-making
Funding: Clarendon Scholarship
- My DPhil work aims to investigate the mechanisms of human multisensory processing and perceptual decision making within crossmodal contexts; I focus on addressing two primary research questions: A. What are the neural processes transforming multiple sensory inputs to a unified representation guiding behaviour? B. How does the brain control the dynamic weighting of multiple inputs and assigns these to either a single or multiple causes?
- focus on auditory-visual interaction;
- use a mixture of psychophysics, functional neuroimaging (MEG) and computational modelling.
