I’ve just downloaded d’Aguilon’s 1613 “Six Books of Optics” from the Internet Archive ( Opticorum Libri Sex by Aguilonius). It’s such a joy to have this classic texts freely available now. The downside is that it tempts me to go … Continue reading
Thanks to Damon Clark at Yale and Jacob A. Zavatone-Veth at Harvard for pointing out the following to me. I had always thought that you could get a direction-selective neuron with a linear filter that is spatiotemporally inseparable, so that … Continue reading
Back in April I attended the excellent NETI meeting at UT Austin. Here’s the group photo:
Check out our guide to mantis breeding, by top insect technician Adam Simmons.
I have just been asked for “a succinct explanation of da Vinci stereopsis”. I googled in the hope of finding one, but couldn’t, so thought I’d put one up here. Leonardo da Vinci didn’t quite realise that stereoscopic depth perception … Continue reading
Our latest paper on mantis stereopsis has just come out in Current Biology. Briefly, we find that mantis stereopsis operates very differently from humans’: it is based on temporal change, and does not require the images to be correlated. We … Continue reading
Lab members Chris Kaspiris-Rousellis, from Greece, and Maydel Fernandez Alonso, from Cuba, are Early Stage Researchers on the European Training Network on Full-Parallax Imaging. Here, they explain their projects. Find videos from all 15 ESRS here.
Sid, Maydel, Chris and I had an excellent time at the VSS meeting last month. Thanks to Ignacio for this snap of my talk on “When invisible noise obscures the signal: the consequences of nonlinearity in motion detection.” Sid gave … Continue reading
I was giving a talk recently about my work on viewer experience with stereoscopic 3D television, and an audience member asked a good question, which was: Was there any relationship between people complaining of adverse effects and whether they routinely … Continue reading
I was happy to see this blog post from software developer Scott Logic, featuring Readlab alumnus Paul Hands. We wish you all the best in your new career, Paul, and it’s great to see you using your maths, computing and … Continue reading
This question comes up occasionally and I was just recently asked a similar question by email, so I thought it would be a good idea to do a blog post that everyone can see. Although there’s a great article on … Continue reading
My former colleague Dr Catherine O’Hanlon, now at Aberystwyth, and I have just published a paper on an interesting effect we found in small children. The roots of this study go back 7 years to when my son was two … Continue reading
Yes, it’s acronym time — by ETN-FPI TS2, I mean the second Training School of the European Training Network on Full-Parallax Imaging, which was held at the University of Valencia in September 2016. Chris Kaspiris-Rousellis and I attended, and had … Continue reading
In our lab, we run experiments on praying mantis vision. We show the insects videos on a computer (mainly boring stimuli like bars moving, or little black dots which are meant to simulate a bug) and video how they move, … Continue reading
