BVI Seminar: Attentional selection of colour is determined by both cone-based and hue-based representations

Jasna Martinovic, University of Aberdeen What is the nature of representations that sustain attention to colour? In other words, is attention to colour predominantly determined by the low-level, cone-opponent chromatic mechanisms established at subcortical processing…

BVI Seminar: Eye Movements in Low and Normally Sighted Vision

Brian Sullivan, University of Bristol, School of Experimental Psychology  I will present two studies examining human eye movements and discuss my role at the University of Bristol. The first study concerns patients with central vision loss who…

BVI Seminar: Psychophysical probes into spatial vision: you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Tim Meese, School of Life and Health Sciences, Aston University. Everyone knows what cosmologists do: they gaze out into the sky to see the secrets of what’s out there, matching observations with theory to understand how…

BVI Seminar: The effectiveness of camouflage; predator learning and new modelling approaches

Jolyon Troscianko, Exeter University Abstract: Evading detection is crucial for the survival of many animals, and number of different means of achieving camouflage have been discovered. I will discuss my recent work investigating whether some…

BVI Seminar: Why do animals look and behave the way they do?

 László Tálas, Camo Lab, University of Bristol Abstract: Why do armies operating in the same environment (e.g. temperate woodland) wear markedly different dress? The primary function of military camouflage is generally understood to be concealment, however…

BVI Seminar: Marked Point Processes for Object Detection and Tracking in High Resolution Images: Applications to Remote Sensing and Biology

Josiane Zerubia, INRIA, France Abstract: In this talk, we combine the methods from probability theory and stochastic geometry to put forward new solutions to the multiple object detection and tracking problem in high resolution remotely sensed…

BVI Seminar: Diverted by dazzle: testing the ‘motion dazzle’ hypothesis.

Anna Hughes, University College London Abstract: `Motion dazzle’ is the hypothesis that certain types of patterns, such as high contrast stripes and zigzags, can cause misperceptions in the speed and direction perception of moving targets….
