This week the group is involved at several presentations at ECVP, KU Leuven:
Predicting the design of salient features in natural environments Olivier Penacchio, Christina G. Halpin, Matthew Wheelwright, John Skelhorn, P. George Lovell, Innes C. Cuthill4, Candy Rowe, Julie M. Harris
The effect of surface properties on avoidance behaviour during reaching Constanze Hesse, Martin Giesel, Anna Nowakowska, Julie Harris
This week, the group and collaborators from Newcastle will be presenting work on our aposematism project at the Anti Predator Coloration Symposium, at Exeter University Falmouth Campus. Speakers will be Matthew Wheelwright, Julie Harris, Olivier Penacchio and Candy Rowe:
The effect of nutritive value of a mimic on its predation rate
Characterising aposematic animal patterns
Modelling predator visual systems: towards simple rules for the design of visual warning signals
What makes an effective warning pattern?
Our paper is out in PNAS:
Asymmetries between achromatic and chromatic extraction of 3D motion signals
Andrew Chua is participating this week in the following course: A practical introduction to eye tracking.
This course is taught through Lund University Humanities Lab at the Joint Faculties for Humanities and Theology at Lund University, Lund Sweden
Welcome to summer students Winnie Li (studying iridescence) and Valeriya Ryabchina (studying attention and depth, funded by Laidlaw).
Alex Mitchell passed her PhD viva today, with only typographical errors. Congratulations Dr. Mitchell.

Becky Maguire is one of the organisers for the BBSRC Eastbio postgraduate training group World Class Underpinning Bioscience (WCUB). She has organised an event on the vision science behind camouflage, entitled: HOW WE SEE THE WORLD: Introduction to vision and camouflage
We are thrilled to have just obtained funding from the @LeverhulmeTrust to fund Olivier Penacchio to study perceptual saliency in natural environments. news.st-andrews.ac.uk/archive/presti…
this weekend, two members of the group, Becky Maguire and Olivier Penacchio, will attend the Scottish Vision Group conference on the Isle of Skye.
