How expectations about the world structure our perception

When we perceive the world, our subjective perception is always the result of the integration of signals from the eyes, ears, or other sensory organs and stored memories as well as expectations about the future.

Specifically the latter aspect, how our expectations about the world structure the way we perceive the world, is the topic of this talk. This will be discussed on the one hand on a microscopic level, how our perceptual apparatus works, and on a more macroscopic level, with respect to its implications for wider society.

Presented by Dr Markus Bauer, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Science in association with the British Science Association.

This lecture will take place on Thursday 21 March at 6pm in B1 Physics Building, University Park Campus.

Attendance is free, and further information is available on the event page.
