"Dylan Paiton"

How does our visual system convert noisy signals into what we perceive? How does the brain represent the world in a way that is both efficient and useful? These questions are what motivate my research. I analyze model neural networks to develop hypotheses for the functional roles of feedback and lateral connectivity in cortex. I study how the class of nonlinearities used for artificial neurons shape their response properties and expressive power. I also develop probabilistic hierarchical models of natural images to advance theoretical frameworks for how we see.
