From the moment we open our eyes, the brain starts to process visual information. The lense projects light from the surrounding environment on to the retina at the back of the eye, which converts the light to a neural signal. The brain translates the neural signal into a mental image: a neural representation of the external world. Iris Groen analyses a specific type of visual information: scene statistics (physical regularities in our surrounding environment). She aims to find out whether this information is involved in shaping our neural representations.
