The objective of this course is to give you the keys to understand the fundamental concepts in visual perception, following a multi-disciplinary approach in neuroscience, psychology and modeling. In neuroscience, the visual system is presented from the processing of the retinal image to the cortex. In the healthy adult man, we present how the visual scene is analyzed in its motion, form, color, and depth, and how attention modulates perception. From a computational point of view, the principles of neuronal coding and decoding are exposed, as well as those underlying inferential perception. Various experimental techniques are exposed, including those using signal processing and those analyzing eye movements such as pupillometry. Finally, the course presents a comparative approach of interspecies vision, from fly to man, as well as a debate on the revolution of deep learning for vision.


   01.General Introduction
   02. Linear & non-linear systems for vision science
   03 et 04. Functional organisation of the visual system
   05 et 06. Motion perception and eye movements

   07. Shape perception
   08.
Stereo vision/Colour vision
   09. Perception as inference (Bayes)
   10. Visual attentional effects and other top-down processing
   11. Coding and decoding: Sparseness, efficiency, predictiveness
   12. Vision through species: From flies to humans
   13. Has deep learning solved vision? A debate
