Perception during visual disruptions

Visual perception is perceived as continuous despite frequent disruptions in our visual environment. For example, internal events, such as saccadic eye-movements, and external events, such as object occlusion temporarily prevent visual information from reaching the brain. Combining evidence from these two models of visual disruption (occlusion and saccades), we will describe what information is maintained and how it is updated across the sensory interruption.
Lina Teichmann will focus on dynamic occlusion and demonstrate how object motion is processed through perceptual gaps. Grace Edwards will then describe what pre-saccadic information is maintained across a saccade and how it interacts with post-saccadic processing in retinotopically relevant areas of the early visual cortex.
Both occlusion and saccades provide a window into how the brain bridges perceptual disruptions. Our evidence thus far suggests a role for extrapolation, integration, and potentially suppression in both models. Combining evidence from these typically separate fields enables us to determine if there is a set of mechanisms which support visual processing during visual disruptions in general.

CYCLE d'événements:
Psychology Lunchtime Seminars Reloaded

The Lunchtime Seminar provides both external and internal researchers the opportunity to present their research work to the Psychology Department of the University of Fribourg. The topics presented vary, for example, from work and organizational psychology to applied clinical psychology to cognitive neuroscience. Everyone is welcome, and students are encouraged to attend!
