SEI Investigator Appointed to Distinguished Rank
Jun 5, 2014 - Aug 31, 2014

Dr. Alonso is a visual neuroscientist who has made significant contributions to the understanding of how visual information is processed in the primary visual cortex, the area of the brain with the most detailed representation of visual space.  A large body of Professor Alonso's work has been devoted to understanding the functional role of the connections from thalamus to visual cortex, which provides the main entrance of visual information to the brain.  He also made contributions to understanding how receptive fields are constructed in the primary visual cortex, the role of neuronal synchrony in sensory processing, and the role of spatial attention and alertness in visual cortical function.  More recently, his work has revealed pronounced asymmetries in the processing of darks and lights in the visual cortex, which could potentially explain a wide range of visual phenomena including an almost four-century-old puzzle dating back to Galileo.
