Dr. Kamila Jozwik



Kamila was member of the lab from February 2016 till December 2018.

During her stay, she was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt PostDoctoral Fellowship.

She left the lab end of 2017 to take up work at MIT, funded by a Sir Henry Welcome Potdoctoral Fellowship.

I'm interested in the following questions:

How does the primate brain process visual information? 

More specifically - how does the brain recognise faces, objects and scenes? 

What are the underlaying computations of visual and semantic processing? 

I'm using fMRI, EEG, MEG, behavioural measures and single-cell recording data, together with computational modelling (including deep neural networks) to understand these processes better.

Additionally, I'm working on the development of methods to link genomics and brain representations.
