In this research project we investigate the physiological foundations of 3D vision. During the process of stereopsis, the visual system has to find the corresponding image points that are projected to the retinas of the two eyes. We investigate these low level mechanisms of stereopsis with random dot correlogram stimuli using psychophysical methods. We explore to what extent these mechanisms are sensitive to interference using masking stimuli, and the information content and similarity of incoming visual information.

Our brain is able to code, temporarily store (up to 30s) and retrieve the neural representations of the seen images, a process called Visual Short Term Memory (VSTM). Since perceptual representations are difficult to be verbally tagged, the stored information is often vague and vulnerable, subsequent stimulation can easily distort the remembered image. The qualitative and quantitative properties of visual memory mechanisms can be examined using psychophysical, electrophysiological (EEG) and brain imaging (fMRI) methods. The experimental measurements are carried out in the Institute of Physiology and in collaboration with Pécs Diagnostic Center.

Yoga is becoming increasingly popular in the West, due to its beneficial physiological and psychological effects. It balances the activity of the Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and decreases sympathetic activity. Numerous research have proven the method to be effective in maintaining health and improving certain conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, anxiety disorders and depression, to mention a few. We examine the effects of yoga with a multidisciplinary approach using experimental methods such as EEG.

We examine children and young adults with eye diseases that potentially affect stereopsis using psychophysical and electrophysiological (EEG) and brain imaging methods (fMRI). The experimental measurements are carried out in the Institute of Physiology and in collaboration with Pécs Diagnostic Center and the Department of Ophthalmology.

Visual functions deteriorate with aging, object recognition, reading, sports activities, driving become more difficult, to mention a few, and these substantially affect quality of life. The problems are intensified in neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease), where vision domains can be selective affected, and their detection could serve as early biomarkers to promote diagnosis in the early stages of the disease. We use psychophysical, electrophysiological (EEG) and brain imaging (fMRI) methods in our experiments. The measurements are carried out in the Institute of Physiology and in collaboration with Pécs Diagnostic Center and the Department of Neurology.
