How do we visualize our environment? What problems must the visual system overcome? Upon completion of the session, you will have a better understanding of human perceptual abilities and how the neural substrates of vision are organized in the brain.

…We'll talk about perception – how the brain interprets the information that's out there and how it realizes the content of the world based on bottom-up processes. We'll talk about expectation – how the things that you know about the world bias your interpretation of what's going on; how stuff that we know is true, based on our long-term experience, changes what we perceive, even with the same physical evidence.
