Zebra finches have a problem: their eyes are too close together for good depth perception through stereovision. The distance up to which you can estimate depth from stereovision depends on the difference between the images from the two eyes. The closer together the eyes are, the more similar the images, the shorter the range in which stereovision works for you.Continue reading My PhD: 3D perception in zebra finches – AMA (3/4)
For my undergraduate thesis in 2005, I studied the Oriental Firebellied Toad, Bombina orientalis. Males come around a pond to call for females, and females choose their favorite caller and move towards it. To make this possible, males have evolved a strategy to avoid calling simultaneously, which I reproduced in the lab.
In this video, I give a quick run-down of my career and research. It is the first part of four that I am making out of footage taken during my life AMA on the Instagram account of The Addictive Brain. I hope you enjoy it!
You can also find my CV also on this website.
Well, it’s out and announced in both my YouTube Channel welcome message and this other preview video that I posted on Facebook and LinkedIn.
I am planning to do two series, and I hope to publish them alternately and I also hope to get the first one out by Thursday, February 7th. Crossing fingers that this will work out!Continue reading Getting Real with my Video Series
