Property-based neural representation of scene and space
Dept. of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
Behavioral and computational studies suggest that visual scene analysis rapidly produces a rich description of both the objects and the spatial layout of a scene. In this talk, I will describe recent findings in cognitive neuroscience showing that visual scene information is represented in a distributed manner across various brain areas.

*The Feeling of Not Knowing Where to Go: Cognitive and Affective Responses to Unexpected Events*
Department of Psychology
At least since Tolman’s seminal studies of choice behavior in
rodents, psychologists have examined how past experiences are used to plan possible future paths as a way to gain insight into decisions that are not fully determined by cues in the immediate external environment.
