Join Dr Rebecca Sharman for another talk in the Curious Minds Series 7.
Humans use camouflage in the natural world and for various purposes, from birdwatching to defence. Dr Rebecca Sharman of Abertay University focuses her research on visual perception and how our brains understand the visual world around us. Rebecca will discuss how different colour and luminance properties allow camouflage to trick our visual system.
What is Curious Minds?
Curious Minds is a full season of Friday evening lectures around the general theme of “Contemporary Science in Scotland”.
For season 7 of Curious Minds, we have assembled our usual mix of superb speakers covering a wide range of topics – from the long-ago Neolithic past in Orkney to the bid to bring the UK’s first clean, green fusion power plant to Ayrshire. Along the way, we will touch on abstract topics, such as the parallels between theology and physics, and concrete topics, such as, well, concrete!
