Description

We might think that we can see everything that is happening around us, and it is often said that 'seeing is believing', indicating that visual perception is considered one of the most trustworthy means of obtaining information. However, research has revealed that perception does not capture as much information about the world as we would think. Even if viewing conditions were excellent, we could still miss important events around us.

This talk will focus on the neuroscientific relationship between visual perception and art, and discusses work being carried out in collaboration with the Ashmolean Museum.
