Project Details


This project aims to identify and characterise the interactions between brain regions underlying a fundamental process in visual perception: interpreting sensory input that is unclear or ambiguous. It will use two complementary neuroimaging techniques and cutting-edge analysis methods. The intended outcomes include new insights into a fundamental but poorly characterised aspect of brain function: how brain regions interact, and advanced analysis methods with wide application. Expected benefits include important advances in knowledge that lay foundations for future study of neural disorders, international collaboration, and new methods placing Australia at the forefront of the international effort to understand the human brain.
