TALK: Talk: James T. Enns (UBC) - The Predictive Brain
In the late 1990’s my colleagues and I began to ask whether the emerging view in neuroscience
— that the brain was massively reentrant — had any consequences for visual perception and
psychophysics. We came to the conclusion that it fundamentally changed the way we understood
visual masking (making a perfectly visible object vanish from consciousness by following it with
another object). When we looked beyond to our understanding of visual priming, visual search,
and visual motion, we found that this new perspective had profound influences there as well.
Most recently, in my lab, we have taken this perspective to better understand visual speech
perception, interactions between the senses (touch–vision) and how implicit predictions and
postdictions combine in motion perception to help us see objects in motion.
