Summary

This study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging to understand how the human brain processes visual information. We will try to determine how humans are able to identify objects in their visual environment, and how human are able to generate mental images of remembered scenes. The results of the research will provide an understanding of how the visual system is affected by damage to visual brain areas, and will contribute to the development of new methods for monitoring internal cognitive states that are difficult to measure with behavioral assays.
