Justin Ales received his B.S. degree in Biomedical/Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California. In 2007 he completed his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Dr. Stanley A. Klein. His dissertation research focused on combining visual evoked potentials and functional magnetic resonance imaging to map neural activity from V1 and V2 with millimeter and millisecond resolution.
My research aims are to develop advances for neuroimaging that combine both electroencephalographic (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and to leverage these techniques for the study of the computational mechanisms that visual cortex utilizes for information processing in response to variations in the environment caused both by changes in stimulus properties and by behavioral goals.
