SD&A Keynote 1

3:50 – 4:50 PM

It is clear that optic flow is useful to guide an observer's movement and that binocular disparity contributes too. Both cues are important in recovering scene structure. What is less clear is how the information might be useful after a few seconds, when the observer has moved to a new vantage point and the egocentric frame in which the information was gathered is no longer applicable.

Prof. Andrew Glennerster studied medicine at Cambridge before working briefly with Michael Morgan at UCL then doing a DPhil and an EU-funded postdoc with Brian Rogers on binocular stereopsis (1989 - 1994). He held an MRC Career Development Award (1994 - 1998) with Andrew Parker in Physiology at Oxford including a year with Suzanne McKee in Smith-Kettlewel, San Francisco. He continued work with Andrew Parker on a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (1999 - 2007) which allowed him to set up a virtual reality laboratory to study 3D perception in moving observer, funded for 12 years by the Wellcome Trust. He moved to Psychology in Reading in 2005, first as a Reader and now as a Professor, where the lab is now funded by EPSRC.

What use is 'time-expired' disparity and optic flow information to a moving observer?, Andrew Glennerster, University of Reading (United Kingdom)
