The Beauchamp Lab studies the neural mechanisms for visual perception and multisensory integration in human subjects. The primary method used is blood-oxygen level dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). fMRI experiment are conducted using the research-dedicated 3 tesla scanner in the UT MRI Center adjacent to the lab. fMRI is combined with other methods, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and electrical stimulation and recording in human patients implanted with electrodes for the treatment of medically intractable epilepsy. Anatomically, the primary focus of the lab is on the superior temporal sulcus, a brain area thought to be critical for multisensory integration and visual perception of complex movements.
