Question: What strategy do you use to understanding the brain? How do you do it, and what machines do you use?

  1. There are lots of ways to understand the brain! You can use imagining machines, which show how the brain reacts to things, like fMRI, or you can use behavioural techniques which show how we react to certain things.

    Personally, I use a method called “psychophysics” which is where you have really really well controlled stimuli which you show to a person, and you measure the behavioural outcomes. This shows us how the brain might be processing those stimuli to cause the response!
