Outside of the lab, Holcombe works to improve transparency in science, including data sharing and open access for all to scientific work.
Inside the lab, Holcombe studies the cognitive bottleneck on processing letters and words.
Human visual systems face a challenge with moving objects because as their images move across the retina, they stimulate disparate neurons across cortex. Holcombe and his collaborators investigate how signals from different neurons' glimpses of a moving object areas are combined, as well as how temporal limits constrain tracking of important objects in a dynamic scene.
