About Vision Lab IISc in Vision lab, Centre for Neuroscience, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore

We recognize objects easily every day, but object recognition is in fact a very difficult problem. Even leading computer algorithms do not match human performance today. Object recognition is not easy for the brain either: a series of cortical areas, taking up ~40% of the brain, is dedicated to vision. But we know very little about the rules by which the brain transforms what we see into what we perceive. What is the nature of this representation? What are the underlying rules?

Want to be a subject in our experiments?
We regularly require human volunteers to perform behavioral experiments on object recognition. The typical experiment takes an hour and involves you looking at images on the screen and making responses using a key press. If you are based in/near IISc and are interested in being a subject in our experiments, please fill this subject information form. We will contact you as and when required.

Positions Available
You are welcome to contact us if you are interested in what we do. The typical scientific project in the lab requires at least a year. Please explain why you are interested and why you might be suitable for the lab. Generic mails will be ignored.

Difficulty recognizing objects?
Disorders of object recognition are of interest to us because they help in understanding how normal object recognition occurs. An excellent example is prosopagnosia or face blindness - people with this disorder can recognize all other objects except faces. If your vision is otherwise normal but you have difficulty perceiving or recognizing objects - and you would like to advance scientific knowledge, please contact us and we can talk further. However please note that we are not doctors and therefore will not be able to treat or help you.
