I am Antimo Buonocore, post-doctoral researcher in Vision Science.

csm_buonocore_antimo_fa468c143eI work in the Physiology of Active Vision lab at the Center for Integrative Neuroscience in Tübingen in collaboration with Prof Ziad Hafed. My main research focus is visual neuroscience. Specifically, I am addressing questions about response inhibition and decision processes within the saccadic system.

Previously, I was working as a post-doc in the Melcher Active Perception group at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences, with Prof David Melcher. I also collaborate with the Visuomotor Lab headed by Prof Rob McIntosh at the University of Edinburgh, where I obtained my Ph.D.
