Julie gave a talk today on counter-shading camouflage, at the Department of Psychology, Oxford University.
Our paper on what 3D motion signals drive vergence has just been accepted by Scientific Reports. A pre-print will appear very soon.
Relative contributions to vergence eye movements of two binocular cues for motion-in-depth

Julie gave a talk on counter-shading camouflage at UCL today.
Becky Maguire has taken part in an Explorathon event, engaging with groups of children at Kirkcaldy West Primary School. I guess you could call it a ‘science day’? It was linked to the Explorathon.
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.
