Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Perception
  • Cognition

His scientific interests lie mostly in Communication, Form perception, Cognitive psychology, Figure–ground and Perception. He has researched Communication in several fields, including Discrimination learning and Artificial intelligence. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Depth perception and Object.

His Figure–ground research incorporates elements of Luminance, Visual processing and Gestalt psychology. He works in the field of Perception, focusing on Visual perception in particular. His Visual perception research includes elements of Audiology, Cognitive neuroscience of visual object recognition, Cognitive science and Face perception.

His most cited work include:

  • A Century of Gestalt Psychology in Visual Perception I. Perceptual Grouping and Figure-Ground Organization (668 citations)
  • Implicit memory for possible and impossible objects: constraints on the construction of structural descriptions (209 citations)
  • Must Figure-Ground Organization Precede Object Recognition? An Assumption in Peril (192 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Figure–ground, Perception, Communication and Social psychology. As a member of one scientific family, Mary A. Peterson mostly works in the field of Cognitive psychology, focusing on Stimulus and, on occasion, Normative. He has included themes like Visual perception, Geometry, Edge and Computer vision in his Figure–ground study.

His Depth perception study in the realm of Perception interacts with subjects such as Poison control. Mary A. Peterson studied Communication and Artificial intelligence that intersect with Pattern recognition and Visual processing. His research on Social psychology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Form perception.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (47.80%)
  • Figure–ground (32.97%)
  • Perception (26.37%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (47.80%)
  • Figure–ground (32.97%)
  • Artificial intelligence (14.84%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Cognitive psychology, Figure–ground, Artificial intelligence, Perception and Object detection are his primary areas of study. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Stimulus, Object perception, Object and Perirhinal cortex. His Figure–ground research incorporates themes from Eye tracking, Social psychology, Motion cues and Cognitive science.

He interconnects Communication, Computer vision and Pattern recognition in the investigation of issues within Artificial intelligence. Mary A. Peterson is interested in Form perception, which is a branch of Perception. His research integrates issues of Word, Semantics and Meaning in his study of Object detection.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Neural evidence for competition-mediated suppression in the perception of a single object. (14 citations)
  • Increased alpha band activity indexes inhibitory competition across a border during figure assignment. (13 citations)
  • Low-level and high-level contributions to figure-ground organization (11 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Perception
  • Cognition

Mary A. Peterson mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Figure–ground, Perception, Object perception and Object. In the field of Cognitive psychology, his study on Set overlaps with subjects such as Rest. His Figure–ground research integrates issues from Social psychology, Saccadic masking, Categorization, Cognitive science and Eye tracking.

His Perception research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Context effect and Top-down and bottom-up design. His Object research includes themes of Prior probability, Bayesian probability, Communication, Boundary value problem and Selective attention. His studies in Communication integrate themes in fields like Alpha power, Eeg alpha, Artificial intelligence, Alpha band and Pattern recognition.
