Selectivity and invariance in dynamic movie stimuli

Selectivity and invariance in dynamic movie stimuli

This project aims to use naturalistic dynamic stimuli in movies to study selectivity and invariance during visual recognition. The questions include “What/who is there?”, “What is the person doing?”, “What is where?”. These efforts combine computational modeling to evaluate biologically plausible algorithms and physiological recordings to investigate the neural circuits along the ventral visual stream involved in visual recognition for dynamic and complex stimuli. These data sets are also used to investigate eye movements while watching movies and to evaluate how well biologically plausible algorithms can predict saccades (i.e., addressing the question of “What will happen next?” in terms of eye movements).
