Hi, I'm Jacob Yates

I’m a post-doctoral fellow at the Center For Visual Science at the University of Rochester in the labs of Jude Mitchell and Greg Deangelis. I did my PhD work at the University of Texas, co-advised by Jonathan Pillow and Alex Huk.

I’m interested in how sensory signals are encoded into neural activity and how that activity is decoded to form perceptions and actions. To approach this, I use a combination of electrophysiology, psychophysics and computational modeling.
