PBS Program Name:
ARC 17/18 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Early Career Researcher Award
Grant Activity:
Understanding image segmentation in the human brain
Purpose:
This project aims to understand how the human brain segments complex visual scenes into individual objects. Image segmentation is a prerequisite for everyday tasks such as visual search, object recognition, and visual navigation, yet the underlying neural mechanisms are only partially understood. This project will apply advanced neuroimaging techniques to investigate image segmentation in the human brain at multiple levels of the visual processing hierarchy. Outcomes from this project will strengthen Australia's contribution to the fields of visual neuroscience and neuroimaging. In the long-term, a deeper understanding of complex visual processing in the human brain has the potential to inform the development of artificial vision systems.
