Deviate : the science of seeing differently by R. Beau Lotto( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perception is the foundation of human experience, but few of us understand why we see what we do, much less how. By revealing the startling truths about the brain and its perceptions, [neuroscientist] Beau Lotto shows that the next big innovation is not a new technology: it is a new way of seeing. In his first major book, Lotto draws on over two decades of pioneering research to explain that our brain didn't evolve to see the world accurately. It can't! Visually stunning, with entertaining illustrations and optical illusions throughout, and with clear and comprehensive explanations of the science behind how our perceptions operate, Deviate will revolutionize the way you see yourself, others, and the world. With this new understanding of how the brain functions, we can apply these insights to every aspect of life and work. Deviate is not just an illuminating account of the neuroscience of thought, behavior, and creativity: it is a call to action, enlisting readers in their own journey of self-discovery."--Jacket

Do you see what I see? by Sophie Robinson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a movie hero leaps into a taxi and shouts, "Follow that blue car!" he takes the driver's understanding of color for granted. But, physiologically speaking, can we be sure that the hues we perceive are the same? How do you actually describe them? To what degree are they created in our brains? This program explores what color really means to us, with expertise drawn from the realms of neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and art. Shedding light on the role of color in the animal world and how it influences moods and reactions, the film features brain researcher Beau Lotto, who conducts a series of experiments to prove that perception is key. Meanwhile, color-blind artist Meghan Simms prepares to undergo gene therapy in the hope of improving her response to chromatic stimuli. A provocative and engaging report
Just Trial and Error : Conversations on Consciousness( Visual )

Over the course of the film, they offer insights into the human brain, perception, the space art occupies, the role of the Internet, global consciousness, and much more. A provocative multidisciplinary documentary that is, in the words of New Scientist magazine, "a meditation on consciousness in today's society and the overwhelming sense that we need to place greater value on qualitative approaches
