About the lab

Our research addresses the mechanisms that allow the brain to turn the noisy and ambiguous information it receives from the sensory organs into the vivid perception of the world and ourselves we consciously experience.

We are especially interested in the perception of touch and the body, interactions between the senses in temporal perception, the role of priors and causal inference in multisensory perception, the interplay between perception and action across modalities as well as the plasticity of these mechanisms.

To answer our research questions, we combine psychophysics with mathematical and computational modeling. Additionally, we use eye- and posture tracking, neuroscientific methods, and machine learning approaches.
