Cuttlefish vision in a 3-D world

Prof. Daniel Osorio, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex
Abstract: Cuttlefish are a type of mollusc, which has evolved excellent vision independently of vertebrates, and can change their appearance to conceal themselves from predatory fish. The flexibility and subtlety of this adaptive camouflage gives remarkable insight into the vision in a non-human species, and I will talk today about how they respond to patterns of light and shadow to select their coloration pattern.
Biography: Daniel Osorio is at the University of Sussex, where he has studied colour vision and camouflage is a wide range of animals, but never humans.
