A brain is very computationally efficient – you can look at a group of objects and your brain will instantly calculate the average features (size, orientation, etc). But how fast is this process – can it even be done with images that flash by so quickly you aren’t sure if you even saw them? To learn more, we interviewed Maria Servetnik, a Master’s student at the University of Leuven in Belgium who is currently testing this hypothesis. In our conversation, we also discussed the importance of mentorship, her journey from journalism to science, the challenges of communicating science to people who don’t trust the scientific process, and how to stay sane amidst the combined struggles of grad school and 2020.
