Abstract : Research during the year has been divided between studies at USC (biederman and students) and Minnesota. Our research continues to focus on linking early sensory representations to higher-level perceptual representations. Studies outlined below have examined the sensory/perceptual middle ground in object recognition, depth perception, reading, and auditory perception. Several of our studies have used ideal-observer analysis. The ideal- observer approach provides a means for quantifying the information available to perception and for evaluating the effectiveness with which humans use that information.
