Opening Doors of Perception


Opening Doors of Perception

Logo for Opening Doors of Perception
Edward Adelson's group has devised a new set of visual illusions that serve as tools for exploring the operations of lightness perception. Simple animations explore 11 tricks of light. These experiments have exposed a set of mid-level mechanisms operating with "mid-level" representations, sensitive to statistical and configural aspects of an image. For the nitty-gritty on perception, read papers by lab members that probe the lightness illusions or present the basics of image processing.
