Dr Tim Bussey

Dr Bussey is interested in the neurobiology of visual learning, memory and perception. His research is conducted at two different levels of brain organisation, the anatomical systems and neural network levels. The former is concerned with brain structures and their function and relationship to one another. The latter is concerned mainly with neocortical circuitry and the action of neurotransmitters. These two levels are the appropriate ones at which to begin to address the two ‘big questions’ in which we are interested, namely ‘How are visual memory and perception organised in the brain?’ and ‘What are the mechanisms of visual memory and perception in the brain?’
