James A. Mazer (Jamie)

Associate Professor of Neurobiology (Yale School of Medicine) and Psychology (Yale College)

I run a research lab at the Med School that studies the neural circuits in the mammalian brain reesponsible for visual perception, object recognition and generating eye movements during natural behavior. I’m particularly interested in how behavioral goals, like motivation and attention (which change on a moment-to-moment basis), can alter sensory processing in the visual brain.
