Title:

“Coding Mechanisms in Color Vision”

Abstract:

Coding of color in the retina and lateral geniculate nucleus is dominated by cone-opponency, and color selectivitiescluster around the corresponding color space axes. In the visual cortex, a more distributed representation for color stimuli is found. We investigated the emergence and consequences of such a population code for the encoding and processing of color. Using statistical models applied to natural chromatic signals, we found that a population code with distributed selectivitiesfor color may arise from efficient encoding of center-surround filtered cone signals in ON and OFF retinal pathways. Quantitative measurements of color induction yielded effects of lateral interactions that resemble those found in the processing of orientation, and that can be explained by response modulations in a population code. Our results indicate that, going from a precorticalencoding based on few cone opponencyaxes to a distributed population code in the cortex, the visual system may achieve a representation to efficentlyimplement lateral interactions for important tasks like color constancy.

Title: Toyohashi University of Technology Creates a Cradle of Fourth Generation Roadway Vehicles

Abstract: The history of railways starts with steam locomotives powered by coal, then diesel-oil based engines, followed by electric motors from charged batteries, and culminates in electricity from overhead cables. These four steps should be applicable for the development of practical "roadway vehicles" as well. With this background, Toyohashi University of Technology is creating a cradle of fourth-generation personal mobility electric vehicles on campus this year. The talk will include a spectacular demonstration featuring a scale model of this electric vehicle.
