Welcome to the
Bernhardt-Walther Lab!

The Bernhardt-Walther Lab at the University of Toronto investigates the neural and computational principles of high-level sensory perception. We employ neuroimaging (fMRI, MEG, EEG), psychophysics, eye tracking, and computational modeling to explore how people see and hear their real-world environments. Current interests in the lab include the representation of shape in real-world scenes, perceptual organization, categorization with GAN-generated stimuli and empirical aesthetics. We always welcome new ideas and research directions!
