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.
