Research Overview

How do we perceive object motion as we move through the world? My current project investigates both the behavior and neurophysiology of how the visual system estimates the motion of independently moving objects while we are moving. I am performing electrophysiological recordings in rhesus macaques in motion-processing visual areas while the monkeys discriminate the motion of an object during simulated self-motion.
