Personal profile

Research overview

Mike Oram's research is into the neurophysiology underlying behaviour, particularly primate visual information processing and how this might lead to psychological phenomena related to perception. He uses neurophysiological data to constrain and direct the traditionally 'engineering based' area of neural networks used to aid understanding of sensory mechanisms. His work focuses on the temporal aspects of neurophysiological data and how this relates to the processing of visual information, including analysis and modelling methods that allow examination of temporal properties of neurophysiological data. This type of quantitative analysis of response properties of neurones suggests possible relationships between neural activity and behavioural phenomena
