We joined the new PsychToolbox community

The lab has relied on PsychToolbox from the start and we have often reached out to the main developer, Mario Kleiner, for additional functionality and received exceptional support. PsychToolbox is certainly one of the most valuable services to the vision science community. After years of discussions and uncertainty of how it could be made sustainable, … Continue reading We joined the new PsychToolbox community

In press: Spotlight on Remapping attention pointers

Because the eyes move, the correspondence between each location in the world and each location on the retina is arbitrary. From one fixation to the next, each object changes places on the retina. Both psychophysical and neurophysiological studies aim to better understand how we keep track of locations as the eyes move about. Yet the links between neural and behavioral findings remain obscure. Inspired by … Continue reading In press: Spotlight on Remapping attention pointers

Bernstein Sparks Workshop on Active Perceptual Memory

We are pleased to announce the Bernstein Sparks Workshop on Active Perceptual Memory. The goal of this workshop is to bring together recent developments in perceptual memory and active perception—in particular eye movements—to capitalize on the numerous potential empirical and theoretical interfaces between these fields of research.   Where and when: Berlin, Germany, on October 26-27, 2015.   … Continue reading Bernstein Sparks Workshop on Active Perceptual Memory
