This talk is being sponsored by St John's College: Kenneth Craik was a Fellow of St John's and described the 'Craik effect' in his Fellowship Dissertation

The Craik Effect occurs when two identical patches of light appear to differ in brightness because of a light-dark edge between them. The neural basis for the effect remains controversial. A light-dark edge at a monocular level of neural representation will be shown to be neither necessary nor sufficient for the Craik Effect. This implies a binocularly integrated neural representation mediates the illusory brightness difference.

This talk is part of the Craik Club series.
