 +**Peripheral vision, inference, and visual awareness**: An extended abstract is now available based on Ruth Rosenholtz' invited talk at the VSS 2017 Symposium, "The Role of Ensemble Statistics in the Visual Periphery." [[https://arxiv.org/abs/1706.02764|What modern vision science reveals about the awareness puzzle: Summary-statistic encoding plus decision limits underlie the richness of visual perception and its quirky failures]]
 +
 +**Attention and limited capacity**: Ruth Rosenholtz has a new paper on what we have learned about attention by studying peripheral vision. This leads us to a new conceptualization of limited capacity in vision and the mechanisms for dealing with it. "[[publications:attentionhvei2017|Capacity limits and how the visual system copes with them]]."
 +
 +**Modelling visual crowding**: Shaiyan and Ruth's work testing a unified account of visual crowding has been accepted to the [[http://jov.arvojournals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2498972|Journal of Vision]].
 +
 +**Paper accepted to IROS 2014**: Rui and Wenzhen's work on adapting the [[http://www.gelsight.com|Gelsight]] sensor for robotic touch has been accepted to IROS 2014. This work was done in collaboration with the [[http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/rplatt/|Platt]] group at NEU, and it was covered by [[http://newsoffice.mit.edu/2014/fingertip-sensor-gives-robot-dexterity-0919|MIT News]].
 +
 +**Taking a new look at subway map design**: The Rosenholtz lab's Texture Tiling Model was used to evaluate subway maps for the MBTA Map Redesign Contest. Check out the [[http://www.fastcodesign.com/3020708/evidence/the-science-of-a-great-subway-map|FastCompany Design article]], [[http://blog.visual.ly/how-do-our-brains-process-infographics-mit-mongrel-shows-peripheral-vision-at-work/|Visual.ly article]], and the [[http://www.csail.mit.edu/node/2094|CSAIL news article]]. The news was also picked up by a couple other media sources: [[http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/smartnews/2013/11/how-much-of-a-subway-map-can-one-persons-brain-process/|Smithsonian Magazine]] and [[http://dish.andrewsullivan.com/2013/11/07/building-a-better-subway-map/|The Dish]].
