Internal noise and sampling efficiency
In this project we explore the role of noise in processing of visual attributes such as motion (RDK, Figure 1) and shape perception by measuring thresholds at variable external noises. We use linear amplifier model of equivalent noise paradigm to seperate the performance into internal noise and sampling efficiency parameters in order to understand the limitiation in processing cluttered visual environment in clinical conditions such as amblyopia.
