How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Throughout evolution, the human visual system has adapted to efficiently encode several environmental constants to deal with the huge complexity involved in representing large-scale spatial environments. Being terrestrial animals, these constants reflect a specific ground-based viewpoint. For example, people show a strong affinity for detecting a p...
Visual analysis of complex real-world scenes (e.g. overhead imagery) is a skill essential to many professional domains. However, little is currently known about how this skill is formed and develops with experience. The present work adopts a neuroergonomic approach to uncover the underlying mechanisms associated with the acquisition of scene expert...
Recent work studying the temporal dynamics of visual scene processing (Harel et al., 2016) has found that global scene properties (GSPs) modulate the amplitude of early Event-Related Potentials (ERPs). It is still not clear, however, to what extent the processing of these GSPs is influenced by their behavioral relevance, determined by the goals of...
Several behavioural studies have suggested that rarity is critical for enabling irrelevant, salient objects to capture attention. We tested this hypothesis using the N2pc thought to reflect attentional allocation. A cue display was followed by a target display in which participants identified the letter in a specific colour. Experiment 1 pitted rar...
