Hello, my name is Taylor. I am a junior undergraduate majoring in Computational Neuroscience. I joined the Image Understanding Lab in Spring 2017. The brain is able to perceive complex stimuli from the outside environment and transform these into interpretable images, sounds, and more. So many aspects of these processes happen seemingly automatically during everyday tasks. You see a chair and know it is a chair without having to reason with yourself about how you came to this conclusion. Yet to reach this identification, your brain is processing large amounts of information incredibly efficiently. I find it interesting to research the details of face, object, and sound recognition processes. Through research, I am able to expand my knowledge outside of my classroom curriculum and dig deeper into unsolved questions. During my time in the lab, I look forward to developing a stronger understanding of higher level visual processes and exploring the areas of facial recognition that are not yet fully understood.
