Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and psychophysical studies of sensory perception and cognition
The purpose of this study is (1) to understand how the brain processes sensory information and (2) how this is affected by factors like blindness or synesthesia. In addition to behavioral testing, the study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) which enables us to take pictures of the brain while you are doing a task, using an instrument called an MRI scanner.
Participants will perform simple behavioral tasks either stand-alone or while being scanned; they may also complete questionnaires or rating scales.
