My research investigates the neural substrates of optic-flow parsing: I am interested in how the brain separates self-motion from real motion of objects 'out there’ in the world. This can help us to understand how we navigate through our environment, calculate our heading direction as well as recognise stationary and moving objects in our surroundings.
