Kristine Krug's research group Public Engagement
Beat the Vision Expert
Live crowd experiment on making decision-making about what we see at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhbition 2015. Can the crowd be as good or even better than a trained vision expert at making perceptual decisions? This was part of our Neuron to Nerf guns exhibit (see London Science Museum Late event below).
Your changing brain: from neurons to Nerf guns
With many other Royal Society Research Fellows and scientists, we contributed to the London Science Museum Lates in 2015: The next big thing. Together, Oxford colleagues Holly Bridge, Sarah Newey and Kristine Krug developed an exhibit about the Changing Brain:
- Demonstrating adaptation when your gaze gets bend while shooting Nerf guns
- Comparing expert and crowd judgments on a 3D object
- Looking at brains and cells at different ages.
Interactive Talk: Close encounter with the 3D mind
Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014: Kristine Krug gave an interactive talk about 3D vision that involved red-green glasses, mobile phones to make visual judgements and looking at brain function supporting perception.
