Eugene Switkes, “Studies of Visual Perception: A Window into Brain and Behavior”
October 19, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Scientists and humanists have found common interests in understanding correlations between neural events and complex human behavior. Over the past 30 years we have studied how aspects of human visual perception arise from neural processes that occur in the anatomical substrates of human vision. Professor Switkes discusses how understanding the brain’s recoding of spatial and chromatic information sheds light on the neural basis of visual behavioral phenomena.
Eugene Switkes is Professor of Chemistry and Psychobiology at UC Santa Cruz. He is an Affiliate Professor of Vision Sciences and Optometry at UC Berkeley.
This colloquium is presented by the Center for Cultural Studies, with staff support from the Institute for Humanities Research.
