I use high-field functional magnetic resonance imaging (7T fMRI) to study basic functional properties of human visual cortex at a very fine spatial scale. High-field fMRI with sub-millimeter resolution allows us to extract hemodynamic responses at a scale *close* to that of the cortical laminae and the macrocolumn in humans. My goal is to use this technique to probe the functional organization of local circuits, but also to assess if and how these circuits reflect improvements in performance through learning.
