The research questions we are investigating:
1. Human vision
How do we perceive objects (e.g.
faces) and how is it affected by our previous visual experience?
How do we navigate through the
environment (heading direction judgment and its computation)?
2. Computational modeling
How do our neural populations work
effective and efficiently with so much redundancy in our neural system?
How to model the hierarchical
process in neural network? How does information transfer from low-level
How does the feedback
system work synergistically?
3. Human-computer interaction
What is the basis of effective
design in visual displays, by capturing the most informative features?
How does visual system analyze
large amounts of data in a short period of time? What kind of optimization
processes are involved?
