One Day University: Do My Eyes Deceive Me? The Science of How Humans See the World Monday, July 22, 2019 | Monday, 10:00 am - 11:15 am Location: Main Meeting Room, 408 High Street Contact: Kent County Public Library Phone: 410-778-3636 URL: www.kentcountylibrary.org/events/calendar.php Join us for a free virtual lecture! Do My Eyes Deceive Me? The Science of How Humans See the World presented by Andrew Shatté, University of Arizona It is estimated that humans get 80% of their information about the world through their eyes and so the science of vision has fascinated us for centuries. Human vision performs a remarkable feat; it glimpses a 3-D world, represents it as 2-D on the eye, and then uses the brain to reconstruct it as a 3-D perception. In this highly energetic session, Dr. Shatté takes you on a whirlwind tour of the journey from eye to brain, using the classic visual illusions to illustrate what we know about how we make sense of our world. What do case studies tell us about our eyes and our brains (like the man who saw the world upside down, the people who can't recognize faces, or those who can't see movement or depth)? Join us as we unpack how humans see the world.
