High-level vision is a field of study concerned with functions such as visual object recognition and categorization, scene understanding, and reasoning about visual structure. It is an essentially cross-disciplinary endeavor, drawing on concepts and methods from neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, cognitive psychology, applied mathematics, computer science, and philosophy. This course concentrates on a critical examination of a collection of research publications, linked by a common thread, from the diverse perspectives offered by the different disciplines. Students write biweekly commentaries on the assigned papers and a term paper integrating the material covered in class.
