The Neural Basis of Perception: Discrimination, Information-Processing, and Biases

Research and writing leading to publication of a book on the nature of perception based on current neuroscience.

The Neural Basis of Perception: Discrimination, Information-Processing, and Biases is a philosophical investigation into the neural underpinnings of how we experience the world through our senses. Neuroscience is currently one of the most exciting areas of scientific research. The last two decades have seen enormous progress in understanding the neural basis of perception. Despite obvious relevance, this research has barely been taken up in philosophical accounts of perception. Similarly, philosophical work on perception has had little influence on neuroscientific accounts. My book aims to develop an encompassing understanding of the nature of perception informed by both sides thereby contributing to debates in both philosophy and neuroscience while building a bridge between them.
