Disentangling simultaneous changes of surface and illumination

Our faculty member Ass.Prof. Katja Doerschner has published a paper with Robert Ennis from Justus-Liebig-Universitaet Giessen. Abstract: Retinally incident light is an ambiguous product of spectral distributions of light in the environment and their interactions with reflecting, absorbing, and transmitting materials. An ideal color constant observer would unravel these confounded sources of information and account […]

Cortical processes underlying the effects of static sound timing on perceived visual speed

At UMRAM, our post-doc alumni Utku Kaya and faculty member Ass.Prof. Hulusi Kafaligonul published a paper titled “Cortical processes underlying the effects of static sound timing on perceived visual speed” in NeuroImage on 1 Oct 2019.  Abstract: It is well known that the timing of brief static sounds can alter different aspects of visual motion perception. For instance, previous […]
