Computational models of the brain, computer vision, artificial intelligence
O'Reilly develops computational and formal models of the biological bases of cognition (computational cognitive neuroscience). His group focuses on specialization of function in and interactions between hippocampus, prefrontal cortex/basal ganglia and posterior neocortex in learning, memory, attention and controlled processing. He tests predictions from these models using a range of behavioral and other experimental techniques.
