Angela Yu - Faces: A Window into Cognition

Jerome L. Greene Science Center (9th Floor Lecture Hall), Columbia University, 3227 Broadway, New York

Event Description:

Face processing plays a central role in everyday life. Faces also represent a complex and rich class of stimuli that humans readily process, recognize, and make judgments on. Understanding how the brain represents and processes faces is not only important in its own right, but provides a valuable opportunity for studying how the brain selectively and efficiently implements sophisticated computational processes. In this talk, Dr. Angela Yu will give an overview of our recent work modeling human face processing. She and her team leverage sophisticated computer vision techniques to arrive at an efficient and neurally plausible representation of faces, and develop a statistical modeling framework to investigate cognitive and social aspects of human face processing.

Event Speaker:

Dr. Angela Yu is an Associate Professor of Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego.
