How does the brain decide what it is we see or hear? To get to the bottom of this question, we record neural signals (EEG and fMRI) from subjects that are currently deciding on specific characteristics of perceptual stimuli. We then try and combine sensory, decision-related, and motor signals as well as behavioral measures into models that link neural activity to behavior.
