Singleton Auditorium, Building 46-3002

Our sensory systems are unable to directly sense all the aspects of the world we perceive. For example, our perception of the world as three-dimensional (3D) is compelling, but our eyes only detect two-dimensional (2D) projections of our surroundings. Creating accurate and precise 3D percepts is critical for successful interactions with our environment, but how does the brain solve this inverse problem?

The existence of feedforward and feedback neural connections between areas in the primate visual cortical hierarchy is well known. While there is a general consensus for how feedforward connections support the sequential stages of visual processing for tasks such as object recognition, the computational functions of feedback for recognition and other tasks are less well understood.
