> School of Psychology

>
> Three-dimensional (3-D) shape recognition and representation in human  
> vision.
>
> Supervised by Dr. Charles Leek (informal enquiries to  
> e.c.leek at bangor.ac.uk).
>
> This project will examine the way in which the human visual system  
> encodes and represents the shapes of 3-D objects during perception and  
> object recognition, and how we achieve object constancy -- for  
> example, how we recognise objects across changes in viewpoint,  
> illumination and size. The research will combine a variety of  
> behavioural measures including RTs and accuracy during recognition and  
> the analysis of eye movement patterns using state-of-the-art remote  
> eye tracking facilities in the lab. There will also be an opportunity  
> to develop interests in the computational modelling of vision and the  
> use of neural networks to implement and derive predictions from  
> different models of 3-D shape representation.
