I am a PhD student at INCM, Marseille since Dec 2008. I investigate how the brain integrates motion information (aperture problem) by studying the smooth pursuit eye movements for tilted bar stimuli. My previous work involved understanding the dynamic motion integration in a Bayesian framework. Furthermore, I investigated the interactions between retinal and extra-retinal signals in motion integration for smooth pursuit using a blanking paradigm along with aperture problem (tilted bar stimulus). I extended the previous model (Bogadhi et al 2011) to a hierarchical recurrent Bayesian model to understand these interactions. Currently, i am working on extending a more generic hierarchical recurrent Bayesian framework that would also help to better understand anticipatory eye movements in different tasks.
