Markham YorkU Scholars Hub: How we see in 3D
Thu, 8 June 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
We use 3D depth perception in many ways in our daily lives. Every time we catch a ball, walk down the stairs, thread a needle or watch a 3D movie, we rely on this ability. In this presentation I will review the information the brain uses to interpret depth and distance in the world around us, and how we see depth in simulations of that world (in pictures and in 3D film).
Join Markham Public Library and York University as we bring to Markham a taste of the university experience. Each month YorkU faculty will bring their amazing research and provide an opportunity for our community to learn something new.
