Empathy – from shared affect to self-other distinction – Professor Claus Lamm, Full Professor (Biological Psychology) Head of the Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Unit Department of Basic Psychological Research and Research Methods Faculty of Psychology, University of Vienna, Austria

April 28 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Explorations in computing motion and their implications for motion processing in monkey and man. – Professor Alan Johnston, University of Nottingham

May 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Kenneth Craik Room, Craik-Marshall Building, Downing Site,

There are a number of observations that do not fit neatly into the common “back pocket” model of primate motion processing. Space-time receptive fields are not ideal speed-tuned motion detectors. In addition, although some neurons are tuned for speed, some speed-coded neurons monotonically reduce their firing rate with speed and some monotonically increase their firing rate. Paradoxically, some neurons respond well to plaids but not to gratings. A unified model of motion processing of 1D and 2D pattern will be…
