Description

A research fellow from the Department of Physiology (Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences) has captured in this exhibit showcased on the digital wall some of the regularities in which the brain specialises. The things we end up seeing are not only constrained, but constrained in very predictable ways. These constraints produce regularity that the brain can take advantage of to improve how it processes visual information. We are only likely to experience a very small subset of the huge diversity of possible visual images.

Dr Elizabeth Zavitz, who studies the brain from a computational perspective, will talk about her research at a ‘Meet the researcher’ event. Come along if you are also interested in presenting your research through a digital exhibition in the Library.

Light refreshments will be served. Register here.
