11:15–11:45 Q&A about studying, lectures, and degrees at Kyushu University
Lecture 1: Visual Perception The visual world is not
a photo copy of the physical world. To illustrate this, we
wish to introduce some visual phenomena (for example,
motion illusion, afterimage, or vection). They effectively
demonstrate how the eye and brain process visual information.
Lecture 2: Auditory and Speech Perception Speech
perception is closely related to, not only linguistics and
acoustics, but also basic auditory functions and learning.
Several auditory demonstrations using speech stimuli
will be presented, after a brief introduction to the auditory
peripheral functions and recent our investigations
on auditory and speech perception.
Lecture 3: Perception and Brain Research In this
lecture we will look at the structural and functional organization
of the human brain, and discuss the workings of
the brain in relation to human perception. The examples
of neuroscientific research will mostly relate to human
hearing and vision.
