Optica Vision and Color Fall Data Blast!

Hosted By: Clinical Vision Sciences Technical Group

12 October 2021, 12:30 - 14:30 - Eastern Daylight Time (UTC - 04:00)

You’re invited to join the technical groups of the Optica Vision and Color Technical Division and the Optical Fall Vision Meeting Planning Committee for their Fall data blast series. Each week’s session will feature a series of short talks followed by lots of time for questions and discussion.

This week’s session will feature the following talks:

  • In-vivo classification of human cone photoreceptors reveals crystalline S-cone sub-mosaics in the central retina presented by Sierra Schleufer, University of Washington
  • Tissue properties of optic radiations representing the foveal and peripheral visual fields presented by John Kruper, University of Washington
  • Motion/direction-sensitive thalamic neurons project extensively to the middle layers of primary visual cortex presented by Jun Zhuang, Allen Institute for Brain Science
  • Two-dimensional shape perception is based on a salience map presented by George Sperling, University of California, Irvine
  • Evidence for a dipper effect in the perception of global form: findings from psychophysics and EEG presented by Martin T.W. Scott, The University of York
  • Visual Search in Virtual Reality (VSVR): A visual search toolbox for virtual reality presented by Jacob Hadnett-Hunter, University of Bath
  • Perceptual brightness scales in a White's effect stimulus are not captured by multiscale spatial filtering models of brightness perception presented by Joris Vincent, Technische Universität Berlin
  • Attentional Modulation of Early Cortical Chromatic Responses presented by Mackenzie V. Wise, University of Nevada, Reno
  • Effects of event number and adaptation duration on blur and face aftereffects presented by Idris Shareef, University of Nevada, Reno
  • Three new models to account for impact of racially-heterogenous face-diet on face expertise presented by Ipek Oruc, University of British Columbia
  • Probabilistic visual processing in humans and recurrent neural networks presented by Nuttida Rungratsameetaweemana, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies
  • The mechanisms underlying enhanced auditory motion perception in early blind individuals presented by Woon Ju Park, University of Washington
  • Sensorimotor Synchronization with Visual, Auditory, and Tactile Modalities presented by Simon Whitton, University of Nevada, Reno
  • BRENCH: An open-source framework for b(r)enchmarking brightness models presented by Lynn Schmittwilken, Universität Berlin

Our moderators for this session will be Stacey Choi, Ohio State University, and Ravi Jonnal, University of California, Davis.
