Summary
"We've all heard the story about the goldfish with a three-second memory, rediscovering a brand new world with each lap of its bowl. But behavioural science is challenging this perception of fish as dim-witted swimming robots with important implications for the conservation of fisheries. After a private collector noticed a mysterious face appearing in the middle of a classic Australian painting, art restorers realised it was going to take all the tools of modern science to figure out what to do about it. We all know the difference between black and white - right? Wrong Vision Scientist, Dr Bart Anderson has been researching the way we perceive lightness and his discoveries have demanded a re-think of our understanding of vision. Growing up in Adelaide in the 1950s, Professor Jenny Graves went against the norm when she found her passion in the new field of genetics. Famous for her insights into the function & evolution of human genes, particularly those responsible for sex determination, Professor Graves was surprised to find clues to the human genome in Australia's unique marsupials"--website
