Chistopher DiMattina, PhD., is a computational neuroscientist and vision scientist, and Assistant Professor of Psychology at Florida Gulf Coast University. Chris is interested in the relationship between perception, the neural code, and the statistical structure of our natural sensory environment. His Computational Perception Laboratory works on a variety of mid-level vision issues including functional modeling of edge and texture-edge perception in neural networks, second order correlation in natural scenes, and inferring neural population codes from psychophysical data. Future areas of interest include better understanding how visual computations are implemented in neural circuits.
In addition to his main work, Dr. DiMattina also has strong interests in cognitive science and the philosophy of mind, and is happy to serve as a scientific advisor for BPF in the spirit of skeptical free scientific inquiry.
