Visual-Conceptual Processing Interactions

Spatio-temporal Dynamics of Visual-Conceptual Processing Interactions

Dr. Caitlin Mullin is the recipient of the first VISTA Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship and is the Trainee Representative on the VISTA Leadership Committee. In 2018, she joined the lab of VISTA Core Member, Dale Stevens, with a research focus on “Characterizing the Spatio-temporal Dynamics of Visual-Conceptual Processing Interactions”.

Mullin is a former graduate from York University and has completed postdoctoral training at top research labs around the world, including postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Leuven in Belgium and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Mullin brings with her an outstanding track record of achievements in visual neuroscience and an incredible range of technical skills in neuroimaging (fMRI) and neurostimulation (TMS).

Her research aims to uncover the critical interactions between bottom-up visual perception and our internal representations stored in the form of conceptual knowledge, which shapes the way we perceive and interact with the world.
