Workshop on
Natural Environments Tasks and Intelligence

Perceptual and motor systems must reflect the natural tasks the organism performs as well as the properties of the natural environments in which the organism performs those tasks. Thus, the aim of this workshop is to stimulate research in "natural systems analysis," which consists of several interrelated components: (i) identification and characterization of natural tasks, (ii) measurement and analysis of natural scene statistics, (iii) analysis of the computational requirements of natural tasks, (iv) rigorous experimental study of neural and behavioral performance in natural tasks. The emphasis in the 2010 workshop is on the neural mechanisms underlying performance in natural tasks.

Dates: April 9-11, 2010
