Ariel Rokem, Ph.D., is a Post-doctoral Researcher in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University, and he is a Mendeley member in Biological Sciences at Stanford. The goal of his research is to elucidate the biological mechanisms underlying the computations performed by the human visual system. His aim is to combine physiological and behavioral measurements, together with precise quantitative characterization and analysis to understand basic questions about the organization of the visual system in healthy and diseased states. The goal of his current research project is to characterize the neural substrate underlying differences between perception of the central and peripheral parts of the visual field. As part of his PhD, he conducted several projects examining the role of a variety of neurochemical mechanisms in perception, attention and learning.
