  • April 29, 2011: As a follow-up of the conference entitled "Perception & Action - An Intredisciplinary Approach to Cognitive Systems Theory", which took place September 14-16, 2010 at the Santa Fe Institute, NM, USA, key findings, perspectives and future challenges in the field are presented and discussed.

  • February  1, 2011: An active binocular vision system  with saccade and vergence capabilities mimic fundamental human vision. The combination of saccadic and vergence mechanisms provides the system a way to explore and reconstruct positional information of attended objects in the environment.

  • July 1, 2010: A persistent question has been whether it is depth cues or depth cues or depth perception that guides saccades and vergence eye movements. The study has shown that saccdes and perception combine disparity and perspective cues to depth in a similar way. Contrary to perception and saccades, vergence seems dominated by a single cue, binocular disparity.
