We are happy to announce the publication in Current Biology of  “Accuracy of rats in discriminating visual objects is explained by the complexity of their perceptual strategy.” (link here for the main article and here for an accompanying Dispatch of Philippe Schyns). The paper originated in the doctoral thesis of Vladimir Djurdjevic, supervised by Davide Zoccolan, and explains how the variability of rat perceptual strategies accounts for the variable proficiency of the animals in complex object discrimination tasks.

 

SISSA Colloquium | Spaces of finite networks

Many phenomena in mathematics and science can be modeled by drawing finite networks whose nodes are connected by edges with specified lengths. After imposing various natural constraints, the set of all such models forms a geometric space, with one point for each possible model.
