    Frank Tong

    Professor of Psychology

    Frank Tong studies the neural bases of visual perception, attention, face and object recognition, and visual working memory, by using computational approaches to analyze behavioral performance and human neuroimaging data. His  lab uses advanced multivariate approaches to decode detailed information from brain activity patterns, and modeling-based approaches to characterize human behavioral performance. Techniques in the lab include visual psychophysics, high field fMRI at 7T, computational modeling, and more recently EEG and TMS.
