Oct. 19 Eugene Switkes: “Studies of Visual Perception: A Window into Brain and Behavior”

Scientists and humanists have found common interests in understanding correlations between neural events and complex human behavior. Over the past thirty years we have studied how aspects of human visual perception arise from neural processes that occur in the anatomical substrates of human vision. Professor Switkes discusses how understanding the brain’s recoding of spatial and chromatic information sheds light on the neural basis of visual behavioral phenomena.

Eugene Switkes is Professor of Chemistry and Psychobiology, UCSC and Affiliate Professor of Vision Sciences and Optometry, UC Berkeley.
