Peter Tse, Ph.D. (Dartmouth) uses fMRI, DTI, and psychophysics to investigate the cognitive and neural bases of visual perception and consciousness.
His research focuses on the visual perception of 3D form and motion, and how these two types of information interact with each other and with attention. Because the 2D visual image is inherently ambiguous, the visual system must construct 3D percepts on the basis of assumptions about the image-to-world mapping. One of his goals is to understand the assumptions that underlie the construction of visual percepts, and to understand the neuronal circuits that could realize such constructive processes.
