We conduct parallel research in vision research:  On one hand (I.) psychophysically, functional  fMRI and computational aspects on several topics such as adaptation of different visual properties, induction, completion of lines (Kanizsa illusion). On the other hand (II.) developing generic algorithms which are yielded from the above computational models and in addition developing  specific medical applications of these algorithms for medical images. It occurs also that the computational models yield ideas for new experimental studies and to discovery of new visual effects (such as chromatic Mach bands and specific spatial properties of adaptation effects). 



Vision Research


Visual adaptation

Conflicting mechanisms:


                                Chromatic Mach bands


                                Lateral facillitation


                                Induction of first and second orders


                                Kanizsa

Filling-in mechanism due to spatial and temporal edges





Image Processing


Medical image (still/video) processing 

(CT, Mammography, Breast Thermography, Ultrasound, Endoscopy etc.)

Compression of high dynamic range images

Contrast and Texture enhancement

Color constancy

Salience contours
