Description: Research at the Dr. Treue’s lab is aimed at understanding the neural basis of visual perception. Vision is an active process that is far more than a passive registration of our environment. Rather, on its way from the eyes to and through the cortex, visual information is modulated by numerous processes that enhance some aspects while diminishing others. One of these processes is attention, i.e. the ability to filter out unwanted information and concentrate the brain´s processing abilities on relevant information. The accurate representation of visual motion in the environment is one of the most important tasks of the visual system. Correspondingly research in the laboratory concentrates on this ability as a model for sensory information processing in general.
