PSYCH 221: Image Systems Engineering

This course is an introduction to digital imaging technologies. We focus on the principles of key elements of digital systems components; we show how to use simulation to predict how these components will work together in a complete image system simulation. The early lectures introduce the software environment and describe options for the course project. The following topics are covered and software tools are introduced:n- Basic principles of optics (Snell's Law, diffraction, adaptive optics).n- Image sensor and pixel designsn- Color science, metrics, and calibrationn- Human spatial resolutionn- Image processing principlesn- Display technologiesnA special theme of this course is that it explains how imaging technologies accommodate the requirements of the human visual system. The course also explains how image systems simulations can be useful in neuroscience and industrial vision applications.nThe course consists of lectures, software tutorials, and a course project. Tutorials and projects include extensive software simulations of the imaging pipeline. Some background in mathematics (linear algebra) and programming (Matlab) is valuable.nPre-requisite: EE 261 or equivalent. Or permission of instructor required.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1-3

PSYCH 223: Social Norms

This course covers research and theory on the origins and function of social norms.

PSYCH 241: Psychometrics and automated experiment design

n this graduate seminar we will consider how modern computational techniques and old ideas in psychometrics combine to enable new approaches to experimentation. We will cover topics such as item response theory, optimal experiment design, adaptive experiments, and Bayesian optional stopping. We will read fairly technical papers and ask students to implement some of the algorithms we are studying.
