Calibrating the visual systemCall for Papers

 Calibrating the visual system
Vision Research seeks contributions for a special issue entitled
"calibrating the visual system". Visual systems evolved
according to consistent characteristics of the environment and task
demands of the species, but also to be malleable in order to adapt to
specific perturbations in the stimulus and the observer. The special
issue aims to integrate work on the calibration of visual processes in
relation to the stable properties of natural scenes or to variations
in the sensory stimulus or the individualís sensory apparatus, in
different visual domains and over different time scales. Of particular
interest are processes of short, medium and long-term adaptation, and
processes to maintain perceptual constancy, as well as processes that
occur during visual development. We are also seeking papers concerned
with the benefits, costs, and limitations of these adaptations for
optimal encoding of visual information, and for learning and
representing relevant stimuli in the environment. We are seeking both
original research articles and reviews on this subject, covering
diverse methods including psychophysics, physiology, neuroimaging, and
computational modelling

Submission Deadline: March 2020

Manuscripts are submitted through the Special Issue portal of the
submission system and go through peer review as usual.

Each article in the special issue is assigned a unique identifier and
once the article is accepted will be published in a regular journal
issue as soon as available. The unique identifier allows us to
simultaneously add the article to the special issue on ScienceDirect
which is gradually built up as individual articles are published
We do provide Shared Link of the final published version to the
corresponding authors with 50 days free access so that they can share
