Visual Processing & Eye Movement Journal Club
Event Date:

Kids are surprisingly old (~10.5 years) before they combine some sensory cues efficiently. Audrey will present evidence that this reflects the developmental trajectory of sensory-level fusion, rather than post-perceptual decision processes.

Presenter: Audrey Wong-Kee-You

Title: Late Development of Cue Integration Is Linked to Sensory Fusion in Cortex

Paper: Dekker et al., 2015, Current Biology

Title: Effects of Pure Vergence Training on Initiation and Binocular Coordination of Saccades

Paper: Morize et al., 2017, IOVS 

Abstract: 

Purpose: We hypothesized that saccade eye movement properties, particularly latency and binocular coordination, depend on vergence quality.

 
 
PowerPoint with Pizzazz!
Event Date:

Abstract - This seminar will introduce you to many of the new features offered by PowerPoint  2016 and 2019 within the Office 365 subscription. It also will show you some surprising  little-known things you can do without the subscription. Come to learn ways to add pizzazz to your presentations.

Effects of reinforcement learning on the plasticity of the saccadic system
Event Date:

Abstract - About three times per second a decision is made regarding when and where to move the eyes, providing many opportunities to learn about environment regularities and the benefits of adjusting the information-foraging policy to these properties. In this brown bag, I will present the research focusing on the plasticity of the saccadic system done for my Ph.D. dissertation and in the past year as a postdoctoral fellow.

 
 
Non-visual viewing 3D Models, Web Page Layouts, and Code Structure using Tactile Displays
Event Date:

Abstract - Dr. Alexa will be presenting work from 3 projects:

  • shapeCAD: An Accessible 3D Modelling Workflow for the Blind and Visually-Impaired Via 2.5D Shape Displays

Special Colloquium Multisensory interactions and plasticity – shooting hidden assumptions, revealing postdictive aspects
Event Date:

Abstract - Multisensory psychophysics and neuroscience have bloomed in the last several decades. In this talk, I first aim to give a critical review of the field by a list of commonly-accepted propositions/beliefs and provide (at least partially) counterevidence from our home-based laboratory. Some of such 'commonsensical' beliefs and counterevidence are as the following:

1) Vision is dominant, affecting other modalities, not vice versa, (as seemingly indicated by well-known illusions in the field, such as the McGurk and the Ventriloquism effects).
