The 10th Perceptual Frontier Seminar: Rhythm Perception with Mark Elliott

Date and time: 28 November 2013, 18:00-20:00
Venue: Room 601, 6 F, Build. 3, Ohashi Campus, Kyushu University

Talk 1: Golden Section Effects in Visual Cognition: A Signature for Complex-System Organization?
Mark A. ELLIOTT*,  Joy KELLY*, Jonas FRIEDEL**, Jennifer BRODSKY*** Paul MULCAHY*
*School of Psychology, NUI Galway, Galway, Republic of Ireland
**Department of Psychology, University of Salzburg, Austria
***Department of Psychology, Union College NY, USA

Search reaction times (RTs) are slower to target sections of a multi-sectioned display when the ratio between larger to smaller sections is equivalent to 1.61803.  Using a visual-search task we sought to establish whether this effect was due to the spatial frequency structure of the displays. We added visual noise to each display matrix which had the statistical effect of convoluting the existing spatial frequency structure with a uniform distribution, and reduced RTs consistent with our expectations.

Other expected talkers: Yuko YAMASHITA, Emi HASUO, and BAO Zhimin
