J. Kevin O'Regan

Visiting Scientist
Dates of Visit: Apr. 1May 1, 2018
Kevin O'Regan is ex-director of the Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception, CNRS, Université Paris Descartes. After early work on eye movements in reading, he was led to question established notions of the nature of visual perception, and to discover, with collaborators, the phenomenon of "change blindness". In 2011 he published a book with Oxford University Press: "Why red doesn't sound like a bell: Understanding the feel of consciousness". In 2013 he obtained a five year Advanced ERC grant to explore his "sensorimotor" approach to consciousness in relation to sensory substitution, pain, color, space perception, developmental psychology and robotics.
