Laboratory of Brain   ProcessES

Welcome! LOBES is the Laboratory Of Brain ProcessES at the Ohio State University.

The goal of our research is to construct computational brain models for perception and cognition--- models sufficiently computational such that they can be represented in a computer program or in mathematical theory. Psychophysical experimentation, physiological investigation, clinical testing, and computational modeling are essential elements in our research.

We are currently working on:

  • Computational & psychophysical study of visual and auditory perception, attention, and perceptual learning.
  • Functional brain imaging study of sensory and attentional processes, learning, reading, and human decision-making.
  • Visual deficits in dyslexia, amblyopia, and Alzheimer's disease.

A new book, Visual Psychophysics: From Laboratory to Theory, has been published by the MIT press on October 11, 2013.
