BI 055 Thomas Naselaris: Seeing Versus Imagining

00:00 / 01:26:18

Thomas and I talk about what happens in the brain’s visual system when you see something versus imagine it. He uses generative encoding and decoding models and brain signals like fMRI and EEG to test the nature of mental imagery. We also discuss the huge fMRI dataset of natural images he’s collected to infer models of the entire visual system, how we’ve still not tapped the potential of fMRI, and more.

Recently I was interviewed on Ginger Campbell’s podcast Brain Science.

You can hear more about me, the show, and a bit about deep learning and how it relates to neuroscience if you’d like.
