S-114.204 Modelling of Perception


Spring 2001 (2 ov, L)

Teacher: prof. Jouko Lampinen


The course is focused in modelling the mechanisms of human perception. The main emphasis is in models based on probability theory, that attempt to explain how the sensory information and contextual expectations can be conmbined to meaningfull perceptions. The main sensory modality in the course is visual perception, but also integration of auditive and visual information is addressed.

Course requirements: active participation in the seminars, seminar presentation, and a small project work.
