Dr. Yury Petrov studies low-level visual mechanisms in humans, including stereoscopic vision, shape processing, and contextual effects, such as visual masking and crowding. His present interests include the role of attention in crowding, physiological mechanisms of overlay suppression and surround suppression, and the neural basis of perceptual switches for ambiguous visual stimuli. His research is based on psychophysical methods accompanied by high-density EEG recordings with cortical source localization.
