This week David Aagten-Murphy will be leading the discussion of the following paper by Benedetto et al who study how contrast discrimination performance can be modulated by ~10% depending on individuals underlying “perceptual cycles”.

NB: This week only the Journal Club will take place in the Craik Marshall room (instead of the usual room in the Psychology Building).

Rhythmic modulation of visual contrast discrimination triggered by action – Alessandro Benedetto, Donatella Spinelli, M. Concetta Morrone http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0960982215010738

About the meeting: In the interest of fostering communication, collaboration and discussion between more members of the department we have decided to commence a Vision Journal Club (click here for our talks.cam page). The meeting is on Fridays and will begin promptly at 11.30am in the Craik Marshall room, and run for an hour only. The idea of this weekly meeting is to provide an informal venue for vision-interested researchers to collectively mull over various vision-related articles. Unlike other talks or colloquiums, the idea of these meetings is not to passively sit in the audience and be informed about a topic of research by an expert in the field, but instead to have a collection of people who have all read the article get together and work through the article, clarify important points and discuss the implications. While each meeting will have a host – someone to keep things (roughly) on track – the emphasis will be on group discussion of the paper.

This talk is part of the Vision Science Journal Club series.
