Users Workshop

August 28, 2018
Friday, September 28, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Psychology Building, Room 217
Graduate students and faculty attend a CCBBI users workshop

Dr. AJ Collegio (George Washington University) will be skyping in with us for this meeting. Dr. Collegio's work answers the question whether you are more or less efficient to allocate attention to a bulldozer than a cell phone, even if the images are displayed with the same pixel measurements on the computer screen:

Humans encounter objects of varying shapes and sizes every day. The impact of object size on visual perception has been well-demonstrated, specifically with recent fMRI studies demonstrating topographic organization of real-world object size in occipito-temporal cortex. How might this organization of the brain during perception translate to changes in behavior during an attentional selection task? Would such cortical segmentation have a direct impact on attentional selection?


MRI Users Workshops are monthly informal gatherings for users who are interested in getting to know each other and talking science. The workshop is open to all, and students and postdocs are particularly encouraged to attend.

Workshops are taking on a new format this semester- they will involve a short presentation of work (10-15 minutes) with an extended discussion at the end. The presentations will be live-streamed and recorded in collaboration with the OnNeuro platform, check it out here! Refreshments will be provided!

Workshops take place on the fourth Friday of each month at 1:00pm, in the Psychology Building, Room 217. To receive meeting details and related MRI announcements, please complete a request form and specify that you would like to be added to the CCBBI mailing list.
