Grant - Human Vision: Predicting the present? Suppressing the past?
Australian Research Council
1st November 2013 to 31st December 2017
When dealing with moving objects, how does the human brain cope with lags between exposure to retinal images depicting physical events and consequent activity in cortex? Obviously motor planning plays a role, with people reaching toward predicted locations when intercepting moving objects, but what, if any, compensation for informational delays is provided by perception? This project will explore situations wherein moving objects are erroneously localised and seem deformed, in order to determine if these are indicative of perception helping to compensate for informational lags. Project results will have substantial theoretical significance, pertaining to the nature of perception and conscious visual awareness.
