Research Interests

My primary research interest is the manner by which the neocortex can construct a useful model of the world from the noisy chaos it is constantly bombarded with by the sensory pathways. Using computational models I hope to replicate the complex interaction of feedforward, recurrent lateral and feedback connections in the primary visual cortex to achieve a better understanding of how the brain selects salient objects from their background or from other distracting stimuli and how this can facilitate how our brain learns about the world.
