The Vision & Cognition research group investigates how our cortex lets us see and aims to apply this knowledge to the development of visual prosthesis.
The Vision and Cognition group is led by Dr. Pieter Roelfsema, also director of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience. Research of this group is directed at understanding cortical mechanisms of visual perception, memory and plasticity. One of our goals is to create a visual cortical prosthesis to restore vision in blind people.
