If you could live without one of your five senses, which one would it be? Does one sensory system take priority over the other? It turns out, these questions are not as straightforward…and the answers will surprise! Sensory processing or sensation makes up a huge aspect of human perception. Dr. Yau’s lab uses functional neuroimaging, noninvasive brain stimulation, computational modeling, and psychophysics to discern principles underlying the integration of sensory information which result in perception and how sensory network connectivity varies across tasks and brain states. In this episode, he discusses his academic journey, the clinical applications of his research, and the insights his efforts have yielded so far.
