What’s happening in the brain when we’re perceiving an object? In this informal talk, Dr. Laura Cacciamani of the Psychology and Child Development Department, will discuss fMRI data (processed using AWS) showing that prediction may underlie the perception of “hidden objects in our visual scene. Dr. Cacciamani’s previous work has explored haptics and brain processing.
Dr. Cacciamani is one of the pioneering Cal Poly faculty to team up with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in conjunction with her research. The audience can ask questions about the process and experience as well as the research itself.
