Join us for our last program in our virtual series reconnecting with past speakers to see what they are up to, and to ask if their respective Catalyst conversations have stayed with them, how have they changed, and how they are dealing with the current moment. 

June 9, 6-7pm EST - Bevil Conway 

Research in Bevil Conway’s lab aims to understand the normal brain processes by which physical signals that impinge on the sensory apparatus (eyes, ears) are transformed into perceptions, thoughts, and actions. Work in the lab has been especially invested in developing color as a model system. The advantage of color is that its physical basis (wavelength) is well characterized, yet these chromatic signals support not only low-level visual abilities such as color matching but also high-level cognitive processes such as categorization, memory, social cognition, and emotion. This variety of phenomena provides a rich opportunity for investigating the full scope of perceptual and cognitive computations that make human vision such an important source of information about the world.
