Research interests

Professor Charles Leek studies the cognitive, computational and neuroanatomical bases of high-level vision. His research spans a range of related issues in visual perception, object-based attention, object representation, object recognition and visuo-spatial processing. A variety of techniques in cognitive neuroscience are employed, including perceptual psychophysics, eye tracking, fMRI, ERPs, TMS, and cognitive neuropsychological studies of brain-damaged patients with acquired and degenerative disorders affecting visual perception, object recognition, visuo-spatial processing, semantic representation and lexical production.

Professor Charles Leek is a member of the Perception, Action and Memory research group.
