Why Does the Cortex Reorganize After Sensory Loss?

Investigating the Teleology of Cortical Reorganization A growing body of evidence demonstrates that the brain can reorganize dra- matically following sensory loss. Although the existence of such neuroplastic crossmodal changes is not in doubt, the functional significance of… Read More Continue reading

VSS 2018 – Shape scission: causal segmentation of shape

Warts, cracks, causal shape segmentation. Research on shape perception usually focuses on the estimation of local surface geometry through cues like stereopsis, shading, or texture. Here, we argue that observers use these shape estimates to infer other object… Read More Continue reading

The perception of surface orientation from multiple sources of optical information

The first piece of work in did in the “Todd Lab” at OSU. I had just come off five years at Pixar and a year back in grad school in the Architecture and Planning department. I wrote most of… Read More Continue reading
