The project had the following three overall goals, all of which have now been accomplished 1 To characterize the brain mechanisms of camouflage-breaking. 2 To characterize the brain mechanisms of learning to break camouflage, or camouflage learning 3 To characterize the brain mechanisms recognizing partially occluded camouflaged objects. The overall finding of this project is that the camouflage-breaking and camouflage learning both engage a rather unique network of brain regions that is distinct from the networks involved in other closely related phenomena, such as visual search. Moreover, the network actively is predictive of the subjects perceptual reports on a trial-to-trial basis. We are currently in the process of writing up the data for publication. We expect to submit the first of these manuscripts for review in a series of these manuscripts by September 1, 2015.
