We study visual perception in humans, both experimentally and
through computational modeling. We focus on the question how
meaningful perceptual categories arise from a given sensory
stimulation. In vision the sensory stimulation is the information
available in the light signal incident at the eye.
We tackle this problem with psychophysical experiments
and measure for example how surface appearance is related to
physical surface properties under varying viewing conditions.
We formulate computational models to account for the
perceptual judgments observers make.
In addition, we revise and develop experimental techniques
that we can use to reliably assess observers' perceptions.
New group members: Joris Vincent, Lynn Schmittwilken, Bernhard Lang and Bianca del Mestre
On November Joris joined us in our group. Joris joined us as a Post-doc. He is from the University of Pennsylvania, Dept. of Neurology. His contact details can be found in People.
On October three new members joined us in our group. Lynn joined us as a Ph.D. student, and she is part of the
Science of Intelligence's Doctoral Programm. Bernhard is co-supervised as a Ph.D. student in our lab. And Bianca is our new secretary. Their contact details can be found in People.
