Viral Immunology group at University of Birmingham, studying the complex role of lymphocytes in persistent infections, with a special focus on Hepatitis C infection and liver immunology.

Visual cognition research - School of Psychology

Description
The retino-cortical processes studied by psychophysicists precede the recognition of 3-D shape and object identity studied by Heinke, Humphreys, Kourtzi, Olson, and Riddoch.

Visual perception research - School of Psychology

Description
Our ability to perceive the 3D structure of the world around us is critical for recognising objects, working out where we are and where we want to navigate to, and for moving our bodies to interact with interesting objects and avoid dangerous objects. Although it may seem like an easy skill, working out the 3D structure of the environment involves a great deal of neural processing, and we do not yet have a full understanding of how the brain achieves it. It is telling that state-of-the-art computer systems show nothing like the sophistication of our own visual systems.
