Helmholtz lecture Paul Bayes, March 31: Computational principles of visual perception and memory

Helmholtz lecture Prof. Paul Bayes (Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge, UK):

Title: Computational principles of visual perception and memory

Abstract: The brain must often combine sensory information from the present with that from the recent past. Nowhere is this more apparent than in vision, where a rapidly changing environment combines with perturbations of the retinal image by eye movements to provide unique challenges for the neural system. In this talk I will present some of the latest advances from our lab in understanding the limits of visual memory and its role in perceiving the world through our eyes.
