Thomas Papathomas gives free talk 'Vision Research: Interactions between Scientists and Artists'

Thomas Papathomas will present a talk on artists who use an intuitive grasp of visual perception to open new horizons in research. Additionally, the talk will highlight how visual scientists use their knowledge of visual brain function to gain an understanding of the art experience, and occasionally venture into art. 

Thomas Papathomas is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering Director of the Laboratory of Vision Research, in the Center for Cognitive Science, and is serving as the Busch Campus, Dean. He obtained his Ph.D. from Columbia University. He works on brain research and is particularly interested in visual perception. In the last few years he has been studying sensory-motor interactions and differences in the perception of three-dimensional faces and scenes between schizophrenia patients and healthy controls. 

He has published over 100 peerreviewed articles and papers and recently contributed to the Patrick Hughes publication 'A New Perspective' published in 2014. 

The talk will take place on Tuesday March 3, 6:30pm at Zimmerli Art Museum. Admission is free.
