Bistable Perception

June 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT

ViewPoint Series - SummerFest 2019

When Change in Awareness is Experienced in the Absence of Changing Stimulation

Speaker: Assal Habibi

Program:  Did you ever notice what happens when you look at an ambiguous figure? Your perception is unstable, changing spontaneously between two possible interpretations. The fact is perception is an active process wherein the brain seeks to interpret the world around us. When sensory input is ambiguous, perception tends to fluctuate over time and allows for multiple, competing perceptual interpretations- in other words bistable perception. In this talk, we will review what is known about bistable perception, the brain mechanisms underlying this process and how we can learn about human behavior by understanding how we perceive ambiguity.
