Radek Cichy investigates human visual cognition. In particular, he focusses on object recognition, i.e. how the brain distils out of the stream of photons hitting the retina a percept of the world consisting of meaningful objects. He takes a broad and integrative approach combining measurements of different imaging modalities with insights from computational modelling, in particular deep learning models.
