Description: Prof. Movshon studies how the brain encodes and decodes visual information, and the mechanisms that put that information to use in the control of behavior. He studies the function and development of the primate visual system (especially the cortex), combining neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and psychophysics. His recent studies have concentrated on (1) understanding the mechanisms that generate signals about the direction of visual motion, and how these signals are used to support psychophysical decisions. (2) Analysis of the functional development of the cortical visual system in monkeys, and the way that development is affected by forms of abnormal early visual experience that produce amblyopia.
