Alex Mitchell has just started a new job as a teaching fellow at the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Scienceat the University of Edinburgh.
Abi Lee presented a poster today at the Applied Vision Association, Xmas Conference in London, on:
Does averaging of speed information make speed change discrimination a difficult task?
Lab member Abi Lee presented a poster today at the Women in Vision UK meeting, in Liverpool on: Why is it difficult to judge a change in speed?
Abi Lee has won the best talk award at the Institute for Behavioural and Neural Sciences (IBANS) end of year Symposium for her talk on: Why is it difficult to judge a change in speed?
We are hosting the Fife_tay Vision Group this evening.
We have two local speakers for the event:
Marlene Poncet: The timing of motion
Makoto Uji: Neuroimaging to identify the underlying mechanisms of human 3D depth perception: Monocular Stereopsis
We have just had a paper on motion-in-depth published in Vision. This work demonstrates that different types of stimuli used to drive the Inter-Ocular Velocity Difference (IOVD) mechanism, may be driving different mechanisms, rather than the same one, as sometimes assumed.
Investigating human visual sensitivity to binocular motion-in-depth for anti- and de-correlated random-dot stimuli

We’re all ready to present our public engagement displays on 3D vision and animal camouflage and warning signals, for Explorathon 2018. We’re at the Dundee Science Centre from 10am-5pm on Saturday 29th September.
Welcome to Andrew Chua and Becky Maguire who are joining the lab to start their PhD’s.
This week Olivier Penacchio will be representing the lab at the European Conference on Visual Perception. He will be giving a talk on Thursday afternoon, in the session on Visual Search and Bistable Perception, entitled:
Ultra-rapid detection of animal visual warning signals, Olivier Penacchio, Julie M. Harris
Our paper has been accepted for publication in Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science:
Sensitivity to velocity- and disparity-based cues to motion-in-depth with and without spared stereopsis in binocular visual impairment. Maloney, Kaestner, Bruce, Bloj, Harris & Wade. IOVS, in press.
