Vision Journal Club

Every few weeks we will discuss a paper, usually picked and presented by a student or a faculty member. "Vision" is in the title of the associated course, but we discuss a range of perception, system neuroscience, computation and cognition topics, some of which are only loosely related to vision per se. The main goal is to critically discuss scientific literature, with a focus on "big picture" implications, experimental rationales, innovative methods and the weaknesses and strengths of presented papers. The Vision Journal club is open to all in the Center for Visual Science (CVS) and brain and cognitive science community.

If you are interested in attending and you are new to this journal club, email to add you to the CVSMOTION email list. If you would like to be deleted from CVSMOTION, also let Chris know.
