My research is focused on how visual perception and decision making arises from interacting neural network components in intra- and inter-cortical areas. I investigate the neural mechanism of 3D perception and decision making for motion direction selectivity and binocular disparity tuning using neurophysiology (i.e., single- and multi-unit laminar recordings) in LIP and V5/MT. Moreover, another project is to examine the specifics of communication between the cortical areas for visual information processing and perceptual decisions by applying parallel recording of multiple neurons and electrical microstimulation.
