Raymond Pavloski, a faculty member in the Psychology Department, participated in the third International Psychological Applications Conference held in Porto, Portugal, on May 5–7, 2018. Pavloski’s presentation was titled “A Theoretical Foundation for the Application of Basic Research in Perception to Prosthetic Vision.”
The accompanying paper, published in the conference proceedings, was coauthored by Victoria Jakicic, a mathematics and psychology major who was awarded a bachelor’s degree in the recent May commencement ceremony.
The paper and presentation stem from Pavloski’s research program that is focused on understanding the relationships between brain activity and aspects of visual perception, and on using that understanding to improve prosthetic vision.
Jakicic will begin work in Purdue University’s doctoral program in Mathematical and Computational Cognitive Science next fall.
