The Representation of Person and Object Identity

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project’s overall objective is to understand how people create a representation of individual people and objects as opposed to object ‘kinds’. A particular focus of the project is to understand the role of object domain and expertise in creating such representations. The fellow’s task will be to develop a series of behavioral and neuroimaging (fMRI) experiments designed to determine the perceptual and cognitive processes involved in generalizing across specific visual instances to a particular individual person/object.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
