MISSING THE BIG PICTURE: The Limits in Human Vision

Our brain's only window into the outside visual world are the eyes, and they lie to us all the time. Ubadah Sabbagh will deliver a public talk on Tuesday, December 12 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. which will cover the limitations in our vision, and some ways the eyes and brain compensate for them.

Ubadah is a neuroscience Ph.D. student in the Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health program at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (VTCRI). He's founder of the VTC Student Outreach Program (VSOP), and a contributing writer to Scientific American, the Huffington Post & others.

The event is free to the public, and will take place at Altus Chocolate in Downtown Roanoke. This talk is part of Star City Science, a public science lecture series sponsored by CoLab and featuring Virginia Tech graduate student speakers from VSOP.
