The Laboratory of Cognitive Neurodynamics, under the direction of Avniel Ghuman, PhD, studies how our brain turns what falls upon our eyes into the rich meaningful experience that we perceive in the world around us. Specifically, the goal of these studies is to examine the spatiotemporal dynamics of how neural activity reflects the stages of information processing and how information flows through brain networks responsible for visual perception. The lab is particularly interested in the dynamic neural representation of faces, bodies, objects, words, and social and affective visual images. This work by the Laboratory of Cognitive Neurodynamics is supported by a Biobehavioral Research Award for Innovative New Scientists from the National Institute of Mental Health, an R21 grant from the National Eye Institute, and a brain initiative grant from the National Science Foundation.
