Dr. Alex Huk Explains 3-D Perception
Tuesday, 21 July 2009 09:04

Dr. Alex Huk, a neurobiologist at the University of Texas at Austin, talks about one way that the brain perceives 3-D motion. 3-D motion perception is critical to everyday life and survival. He and his fellow scientists, Bas Rokers and Larry Cormack, discovered that the brain processes 3-D motion in an area called MT+, long thought to only be responsible for processing 2-D motion.
