Linking Structure And Function In The Human Visual System With Adaptive Optics

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | March 13 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall

​Will S. Tuten, OD, PhD

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

In humans, fine-scale spatio-chromatic vision is the result of neural processes initiated in cone photoreceptors. The overarching goal of my research is to understand how the cellular architecture of the cone mosaic shapes vision, both in healthy subjects and in patients with retinal disease. Adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AOSLO) enables high-resolution imaging of retinal...   More >

The role of auditory feedback in speech production: Berkeley Ear Club

Colloquium | March 13 | 4 p.m. | Tolman Hall, Beach Room 3105

John Houde, Speech & Nuroscience Lab Otolaryngology UC San Francisco

Department of Psychology

An important part of understanding the neural control of speech is determining how auditory feedback is processed during speaking. The behavioral phenomena associated with auditory feedback suggest a paradox about its role: it need not be present for intelligible speech production, but if it is present, it needs to be correct or speech output will be affected. For this reason, current models of...   More >

Understanding Person Recognition: Psychological, Computational, and Neural Perspectives

Seminar | March 14 | 3:30-5 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall

Alice O’Toole, School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences The University of Texas at Dallas

Department of Psychology

The study of person recognition over the last decade has concentrated almost entirely on recognition from the faces. In the real world, recognition of others often begins at a distance, where identity-specific information in the face is poorly resolved. At this distance, identity information in the shape of the body can support and constrain recognition. Remarkably little is known about how we...   More >
