    报告摘要:
    Perceptual learning through practice or training can significantly improve performance on visual tasks. Research on perceptual learning has revealed substantial plasticity in the adult perceptual system and generated strong interest in its application to development of perceptual expertise in the normal population and noninvasive amelioration of deficits in challenged populations. Originally seen as a manifestation of plasticity in the primary visual cortex, perceptual learning is more readily understood as improvements in the function of brain networks that integrate processes including sensory representations, decision, attention, and reward, and balance of plasticity with system stability.  Performance improvements resulting from reweighting or readout of sensory inputs to decision provide a strong theoretical framework for interpreting perceptual learning and transfer that may prove useful in optimizing learning in real world applications. This talk considers the primary phenomena of perceptual learning, theories of perceptual learning, and its applications.

    报告人简介:
    Dr. Lu is the Chief Scientist, Associate Provost for Sciences, and co-Director of the NYU-ECNU Institute of Brain and Cognitive Science at NYU Shanghai, and Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at NYU. He obtained B.S. in theoretical physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1989, and Ph.D. degree in physics at New York University in 1992 with Samuel J. Williamson. After a four-year postdoctoral training at the University of California, Irvine with George Sperling, he became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at University of Southern California in 1996 and then a Professor in 2005 and the William M. Keck Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2006. In 2011, he joined the Ohio State University as Distinguished Professor of Psychology. His research spans a wide range of topics that cover sensory perception, attention, perceptual learning, memory and decision making, as well as related neurological diseases in humans. He has published more than 300 papers, including these landmark papers in Science, Nature, Nature Neuroscience and PNAS, and co-authored two books and 12 book volumes.
