Introduction to Computational Vision

ENG BE 570

Introductory course in biological visual neuroscience and computational vision. Provides a survey of the psychophysical, neuroanatomical and neurophysiological substrates of visual mechanisms underlying perception of visual motion, depth, objects, and space and of decision making mechanisms. Discussion of theoretical, explanatory, paradigms for these visual mechanisms. Topics addressed include psychophysics, methods from single cell recording physiology and low field potentials (LFP),multimodal imaging and computational modeling of various visual tasks and their modulation by attention. We will briefly address learning mechanisms and their relationship to brain plasticity. A term project is required for graduate credit. 4 cr.
