Wednesday Nite @ The Lab

"Seeing and Not Seeing: Investigating Visual Awareness" by Emily Ward, Dept of Psychology

Event Details

Wednesday, June 12, 2019
7 p.m.
Becoming aware of the world seems simple and straightforward — indeed, there may be no aspect of the mind that is more taken for granted, by both laypeople and scientists. But in fact, the gulf between our visual awareness and the world itself is wide and counterintuitive. I will explore several outstanding questions, including whether failures of awareness reflect genuine deficits in moment-by-moment conscious perception and whether we see more than we can report.
