Abstract
Understanding how visual recognition is achieved in the human brain is one of the most fundamental questions in vision research. In this thesis I seek to tackle this problem from a neurocomputational modeling perspective. More specifically, I build machine learning-based models to simulate and explain cognitive phenomena related to human visual recognition, and I improve computational models using brain-inspired principles to excel at computer vision tasks.I first describe how a neurocomputational model (“The Model”, TM, (Cottrell & Hsiao, 2011)) can be applied to explain the modulation of visual experience on the performance of subordinate-level face and object...
