- CATSS Brown Bag Series: Summer 2017 -
 
CATSS Conference Room, S30 Elliott Hall

CATSS Brown Bag gatherings are scheduled every other week throughout the summer. These informal, noon-time or mid-afternoon gatherings are led by a facilitator and focus on a number of different topics. Our intention is to create a forum where colleagues can share their current research activities and discuss topics of interest to participants.
 

Tuesday, May 30, 3:30pm
     Facilitator: Benjamin Munson

Monday, June 12, 12:00pm
     "Audiovisual approaches to communication"
     Facilitator: Andrew Oxenham

Thursday, July 6, 12:00pm
     "Finding a cure for tinnitus?"
     Guest Facilitator: Rich Tyler

Monday, July 10, 12:00pm
     "Big data for low vision research"
     Facilitator: Steve Engel

Tuesday, July 25, 3:30pm
     "Sight-restoring technologies and brain plasticity"
     Facilitator: Gordon Legge

  • Gordon Legge will lead discussion of the current status of sight-restoring technologies for the blind and the relevance of plasticity to their success. Results from brain-imaging studies over the past 20 years have revealed that visual areas of the brain in blind people become responsive to non-visual signals (auditory, tactile). Does this "functional reorganization" stand in the way of successful implementation of sight-restoring technologies after long periods of sight deprivation?
  • For a brief review of some sight-restoring and sensory-substitution technologies for impaired vision, have a look at section VII of: Legge, G.E. & Chung, S.T.L. (2016). Low vision and plasticity. Annual Review of Vision Science, 2, 321-343.

Monday, Aug 7, 12:00pm
     "Functional outcome measures"
     Facilitator: Peggy Nelson

Tues, Aug 22, 3:30pm
     "High field fMRI frustrations"
     Facilitator: Cheryl Olman
