Janneke F.M. Jehee, Principal Investigator at the Center for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior, Raboud University, Nijmegan, Netherlands, is the winner of the 2017 Elsevier/VSS Young Investigator Award.
Dr. Jehee works on the fundamental problem of understanding how the brain represents the visual properties of the environment. Her contributions have used multiple approaches, including computational modeling, psychophysical experimentation and fMRI, to study the interaction between the bottom-up encoding of stimulus features and top-down influences, such as predictability, attention, and learning. She had developed a series of original and innovative rigorous computational models of neural coding, and tested those models against data from single neurons and fMRI, as well as psychophysical observations.
Dr. Jehee will speak at the VSS Awards Session on Monday, May 22 at 12:30 pm in Talk Room 2.
