How does our environment guide neural development, and how does the emerging neural architecture support perception and behavior?

Our research combines neuroimaging, psychophysics, and electrophysiology to understand how intrinsic and experience-driven processes interact throughout development to shape brain organization and behavior. Our current focus is on neural development supporting visual object recognition across mammalian species.

We're looking to hire a postdoc to work on projects tracking behavioral and neural (structural + functional) changes across development in tree shrews, macaques, and humans. E-mail Mike if interested.
