Abstract: In the natural world, complete visual information about the scene and the objects within it is often not available to us. For example, objects may be partly occluded by other objects, be under shadow, have sections missing. We are interested in how the visual system “fills in” these gaps in visual input. You will fixate on the screen and view stripy bars presented in the periphery which may or may not have some sections missing. Your task will be to make judgments about the bars or perform an unrelated attention-demanding task.
First, you will attend a behavioral session in our lab which will take up to 2 hrs. The task is to view stripy bars through a special set of goggles and make judgments about them.
Participants with good performance on the task in Part 1 may be invited to a functional MRI session at the Cognitive Neuroimaging Centre, Experimental Medicine Building (subject to fulfilling the MRI requirements and safety screening). This session will take around 3h, including preparation and set up. The MRI session will consist of several functional scans, including the stripy bars from part 1. There will also be an anatomical (structural) scan of your brain and some localizer scans to map out specific regions in the visual areas.
If you’d like to be a participant for this study, please contact Yulia at email@example.com stating you are interested in Study 1. We will provide you with more information and detailed requirements for the MRI part.
