Aude Oliva, PhD, MIT presents: "Visualizing Human Mental Representations in Time and Space."
When we open our eyes, visual information flows into various parts of our brain, with each region interpreting different aspects of what we are seeing. Using representational similarity analysis, we combine ms-resolution magnetoencephalography (MEG), mm-resolution functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and convolutional neural network (CNN) representations to identify stages of visual recognition processes happening at the millisecond and millimeter scales. This approach opens the door to large-scale views of the dynamics and algorithms of recognition at the scale of processing steps across the whole human brain.
