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 at the Nick Macintosh room in the Psychology Department, 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.
