I am interested in how our visual systems are influenced by what we have recently seen, and what we expect to see in the future. My research focuses on how repeated exposure to the same face or object can alter the response properties of neurons that encode these stimuli (known as stimulus-specific adaptation or repetition suppression). I am also investigating the automatic predictions that we make about our visual environment and how these predictions are expressed in electrophysiological recordings. I use a variety of techniques including event-related potentials, fast periodic visual stimulation and multivariate pattern classification.
