Visual Brain Core Mission

Our mission is to help produce high quality, cutting edge research examining the visual brain. To achieve this, we will help investigators overcome some common barriers to performing high quality vision research, and provide forums to discuss new ideas and research techniques.

The 5 aims of the Visual Brain Core

Information For Visual Brain Core

For Use in Grant Proposals:

The Visual Brain Core must be eventually supported by users. For this reason, we ask that you include your use of the Visual Brain Core resources in the budget of your upcoming grants. Quotations from previous proposals are provided below. Please email to discuss exact amounts to include.

personnel resources

computing resources

Visual Brain Core Personnel and Office Hours

  • Demet Gurler, PhD: Consultation on experimental design and data analysis issues.
    • Office Hours: Tuesday, 2:00 -5:00 pm, Thursday, 9:00 am-12:00 pm, Civitan International Research Center, Room 235C
