Time and Location

We are currently on hiatus. However, our normal meeting times were 1:00-2:00pm every other Wednesday at the Redwood Center (560 Evans). Please sign up to the email list (below) for announcements on meeting dates.


This journal club is aimed at graduate students with an interest in a computational approach to studying how eye motion relates to perception. It provides a broad survey of literature from theoretical and computational neuroscience to physiological and clinical experimentation. Readings will combine both seminal works and recent theories. All attendees are encouraged to read through the paper beforehand - it results in a much more fruitful discussion.

If you have questions, please email the club organizer Dylan Paiton.

Guidelines for Presenting Papers

Each person that selects a paper should present, in about 20-40 minutes:

  • an executive summary
  • an outline of the key points, ideas, or contributions
  • relevant background information
  • a description of the key figures
  • what you took away from the paper
  • some potential questions for discussion

You are encouraged to use whatever method to present (slides, puppets, etc.).
