Currently, we are trying in vain to find the perfect formula to bring
peace to the world.
When we are not busy trying to save the world, we run visual psychophysics
experiments. At the moment, we are conducting several studies within
the fields of biomechanics, visual attention, performance fields,
illusions, development and other creative combinations of cognition
and early visual processing in the vast area of vision sciences.
We are firm believers in the Gabor (a gabor: a sinusoidal grating
enveloped by Gaussian window). In the most secular sense of the term,
a gabor is the fundamental unit that comprises all information presented
in our visual world. Therefore, these gratings are often used as stimuli
to judge how the visual system performs in different tasks targeting
the primary level of visual analysis. We also like to use textures,
square shapes with a gap in either of the four sides, characters like
letters and numbers, lines and dots, faces...
