3 University of Washington Vision & Cognition Group

The University of Washington Vision and Cognition Group consists of 3 research labs led by Geoffrey M. Boynton, Ione Fine, and Scott O. Murray.

Our group currently includes of faculty, post-docs, graduate students, technicians and many undergraduate volunteers with research interests covering a diverse range of topics such as visual perception, attention, deprivation and development using a range of methodologies such as fMRI, MRS, DTI, ERP, psychophysics and computational modeling.
