We are the Michel Computational Vision and Psychophysics Lab at Rutgers University.

Our lab studies the human visual system, with a focus on investigating how we integrate sensory information to make perceptual judgments, how we exploit statistical regularities in the environment, and how we adapt when these statistical regularities are altered or when new statistical contingencies are introduced.  Central to our approach are the treatment of vision as a problem of probabilistic inference, the theoretical framework of optimal computation, and the derivation and use of a mathematically optimal observer for the task under investigation as a standard against which to compare human performance.
