My research focuses on elucidating the neural principles of how aspects from visual scenes, such as colour, motion or polarisation angle are combined, incorporated in an animals perception and ultimately used to enhance visually guided behaviours. I employ a multi-disciplinary approach (e.g. electrophysiology, functional imaging, behavioural assays and transgenic manipulation) and tackle fundamental neuroscience questions, such as the colour opponent process and signal detection theory by quantifying signals in receivers (neural integration in the fly visual system) and senders (conspecific skin signalling in cephalopods). My presentation will focus on both these aspects and also some of the future direction of my new lab here at University of Cambridge.
