Price Laboratory

Neural Coding for Perception

Welcome to the Price Lab

We study how the activity of populations of neurons represents the visual world, underlies perception, and controls eye movements.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Neuroscience Program
and the Department of Physiology.

Our research

We employ a diverse range of methods including studies of human and animal behaviour, extracellular neuronal recordings using multi-electrode arrays, and computational modelling. We are particularly interested in two main questions:

1. How does the context within which we see a visual stimulus affect the way that stimulus is encoded by neurons and perceived?

2. How are features of the visual world such as orientation motion and texture represented by the activity of populations of neurons?
