Dataset: Upright vs. Inverted Scenes

How do we recognize a beach as a beach or a forest as a forest? Human subjects are very efficient at categorizing natural scenes, but we know little about the processing and encoding of natural scene categories in the human brain. We used this image set to study these questions using behavioral techniques and fMRI. The study is in press at the Journal of Neuroscience.
