Seeing is believing. But why and how do these perceptions occur? A new addition to the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) research roster will help answer these critical questions. CSHL is excited to welcome new Fellow Mitra Javadzadeh to the Laboratory’s neuroscience faculty.

Javadzadeh studies the neural computations behind visual perception. Her CSHL lab will focus on how the brain switches between concrete and abstract ways of processing visual information. This work could offer new insight into the mechanics underlying perception itself.

“I am excited to be joining the vibrant scientific community at CSHL,” Javadzadeh says. “My lab is interested in understanding visual perception and the strikingly flexible way in which we process the visual world. I am particularly looking forward to stimulating discussions with the Laboratory’s diverse neuroscience faculty.”

Javadzadeh earned her Ph.D. in neuroscience at University College London’s (UCL) Sainsbury Wellcome Center in 2021. Before coming to CSHL, she worked at UCL as a research fellow. Javadzadeh also brings leadership experience to CSHL. She was a 2021 mentor with the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain.
