We are interested in understanding how visual single and population neurons (LFP) reflect visual perception. We pursue this general goal by studying the response properties, neuronal functions, and mapping organizations of neurons through the visual cortical areas as well as the cortical layers in both awake and anesthetized primates. We also are interested in understanding the neural circuits of spatial visual attention in area V1 of primates and tree shrews.
