James Heron Annual Lecture

June 2, 2016

On December 1, 2015 Howard Ankin attended the James Heron annual lecture.

James Heron graduated from the University of Bradford in 1998 as an optometrist. In 1999, he joined the College of Optometrists. In 2006, he completed his PhD thesis at Bradford. His thesis was “Audiovisual Perceptual Interaction in Humans.” James Heron was appointed as a lecturer within the Department of Optometry and in 2013, he was promoted to a senior lecturer.

Most of James Heron’s research interests involved psychophysical investigations of the human sensory perception. According to his profile, “[t]he question of how the human brain constructs a representation of multisensory space and time is of particular interest together with issues surrounding the role of adaptation to spatiotemporal discrepancies in our environment.”

A few of his publications are the following:

  • Roach, N. W., Heron, J., Whitaker, D., & McGraw, P. V. (2011). Asynchrony adaptation reveals neural population code for audio-visual timing. Proceedings of the Royal Society B-Biological Sciences, 278(1710), 1314-1322
  • Aaen-Stockdale, C., Hotchkiss, J., Heron, J., & Whitaker, D. (2011). Perceived time is spatial frequency dependent. Vision Research 51 (11), 1232-1238
  • Heron, J., Aaen-Stockdale, C., Hotchkiss, J., Roach, N. W., McGraw, P. V., & Whitaker, D. (2012). Duration channels mediate human time perception. Proceedings of the Royal Society B-Biological Sciences, 279(1729) 690-698
