Maria Lev

Maria Lev, MSc
Maria is a PhD student in the Clinical Neuroscience Lab. Her studies are focused on spatial and temporal aspects of lateral integration and the filling-in effect in peripheral and central parts of the visual field. Specifically, Maria is interested in mapping local “perceptive” fields at various eccentricities, by manipulating excitatory and inhibitory interactions, using Event-Related Potentials (ERP) recording, eye-movement tracking and behavioral measurements.
