Scott Murray - Visual Perception and Illusions

The human brain has devoted a large amount of processing power to the analysis of incoming visual information. In this video Dr. Scott Murray emphasizes the goal of visual perception - the interpretation of a proximal stimulus (the retinal stimulation) in terms of the what is out there in the world. His recent research illustrates that even early visual areas, such as V1, show biases towards the final perceptual interpretation of the stimulus and do not just represent a pure copy of the incoming sensory stimulation.
