The group and collaborators have submitted 5 abstracts for the ECVP conference:
Effects of velocity- and position-based cues on horizontal vergence using different forms of motion in depth M. Giesel, J. Harris, A. Yakovleva , M. Wilson , M. Bloj , A. Wade , A. Norcia
How do we discriminate the speed of looming? A. Lee, J. Ales , J. Harris
Modelling the design of efficient animal warning signals O. Penacchio, J. Harris
Attending to motion-in-depth modulates fMRI responses in striate and extrastriate visual areas. M. Kaestner, R. Maloney, M. Bloj, J. Harris, A. Wade.
Sensitivity to binocular cues to motion-in-depth in adults with common impairments of binocular vision in childhood R. Maloney, M. Kaestner, A. Bruce, M. Bloj, J. Harris, A. Wade.
Max Wilson has been a research volunteer with us for several months. He has recently been awarded a place to study for a PhD at Aston University, on Spike-timing Dependent Plasticity in the Motor Cortex, and will be starting in the summer.
Today Julie gave a seminar on our caterpillar camouflage work, to the School of Psychology at the University of Reading.
We are attending Scottish Vision Group from 10th-12th March, on the beautiful Isle of Arran. this year, the group has 3 talks:
Speed discrimination for real-world motion in depth Abigail Lee; Justin Ales; Julie Harris
Spatial suppression in the perception of motion in depth. Benjamin Portelli, Alex Wade, Marina Bloj and Julie Harris
Comparison of horizontal vergence responses to changing disparity and inter- ocular velocity differences. Martin Giesel, Julie M. Harris, Alexandra Yakovleva, Alex R. Wade, Marina Bloj, Anthony M. Norcia2
Today was the Eastbio Presentation Skills Workshop, part of the transferable skills program for BBSRC Eastbio funded students. We enjoyed a day of listen to students talks, and giving feedback to help improve their talk giving techniques.
The Royal Society of Edinburgh commission interviews with scientists for their Schools program. Julie’s second interview on human vision has just been released (click on this link).
Julie is in Newcastle today to examine Lisa Jones on her PhD thesis on vision in the praying mantis.
We have just had a paper accepted by Royal Society Open Science:
Perceived duration of brief visual events is mediated by timing mechanisms at the global stages of visual processing
Beattie, L., Curran, W., Benton, C., Harris, J. & Hibbard, Royal Society Open Science, in press.
Welcome to Xavier Otaku and his PhD students, from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, who are here on a research visit from February-March 2017.
Our paper on visual attention, driving and eye movements is now published in the February 2017 issue of JEP:HPP.
