Using Deep Nets to Understand Visual Recognition in Mind and Brain

Tuesday, May 11, 2021
Hour: 15:00 - 16:00
Prof. Nancy Kanwisher
Dept of Neuroscience, Brain and Cognitive Sciences, McGovern Institute for Brain Research, MIT, USA

In this talk I will describe two ongoing lines of work from my lab that use deep nets to better understand visual recognition and its neural and computational basis in the brain, by testing precise computational models against fMRI data from the ventral visual pathway, and by providing clues into why face recognition works the way it does in the human mind and brain.
