Leila Reddy

 

I am a scientist at the CNRS, based at the CerCo in Toulouse, France.

I am interested in object representation and coding in visual cortex. I use a number of techniques including psychophysics, fMRI and single unit recording in the human brain.

I obtained my PhD at Caltech under the supervision of Professor Christof Koch, and did a post-doc with Professor Nancy Kanwisher at MIT.
