Welcome to the website of Martin Hebart.

My research focuses on visual cognition and decision-making: how we recognize objects around us, how visual processing interacts with cognition, and how we use visual information to form decisions. My approach uses a combination of methods from cognitive psychology (psychophysics, cognitive modeling), computer science (machine learning / artificial intelligence) and neuroscience (functional magnetic resonance imaging, magnetoencephalography).

I work as a postdoctoral fellow with Chris Baker at the Laboratory of Brain and Cognition at the National Institute of Mental Health.

In November 2019, I will start as an independent Max Planck research group leader at the Max Planck Institute of Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. I am currently looking for postdocs and PhD students with experience in experimental psychology or cognitive neuroscience who are interested in visual processing and computational cognition.
