Scientific Focus

Understanding the phenomenon of organization

Understanding the organization of the brain

Modeling processes of organization in the visual system,
in ontogenesis, in learning, in function

Using the problem of invariant object recognition
as paradigmatic application field to work on all of the above.


Conceptual work, mathematical formulation, computer simulation
