Our research is dedicated to uncovering the neural circuits and neural mechanisms underlying visual perception and visual processing. Using voltage-sensitive dye imaging and additional cutting-edge technologies we aim at decoding and reconstruction of visual content from brain activity of behaving animals. We investigate artificial vision in the primary visual cortex using electrical microstimulation and optostimulation of neuronal population.  

Our long-term goals are to provide novel insights into perceptually guided behavior, facilitate the development of a useful cortical visual neuroprosthesis, and improve the treatment of visually impaired subjects.
