Advances in Neural Networks – ISNN 2018 15th International Symposium on Neural Networks, ISNN 2018, Minsk, Belarus, June 25–28, 2018, Proceedings
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 15th International Symposium on Neural Networks, ISNN 2018, held in Minsk, Belarus in June 2018.The 98 revised regular papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 214 submissions. The papers cover many topics of neural network-related research including intelligent control, neurodynamic analysis, bio-signal, bioinformatics and biomedical engineering, clustering, classification, forecasting, models, algorithms, cognitive computation, machine learning, and optimization.
We examined the effects of perceptual set on Ponzo and Müller-Lyer illusions, revealing the existence of the illusory aftereffect in a sensorimotor domain. Our findings demonstrate that the effects of exposure to illusory stimuli in a sensorimotor domain are hand dependent and that there is a correlation between the direction of the aftereffect and the variant of illusion as well as a correlation between the speed of the hand movements over the neutral stimuli during test trials and the type of visual illusion shown during the exposure phase. The results support our hypotheses that: (i) the different illusions have their origins at different stages of the processing of visual information and (ii) effects of illusory perceptual set depend on hemispheric-specific mental representations, which might be activated by the movements of the right or the left hand.
