Research topics & objectives

Our mission is to understand the neurophysiological and computational principles underlying sensory perception, decision making and active behavior. Our research combines behavioural studies with neuroimaging (M/EEG), virtual reality and computational modeling.

Current work focuses on hearing and multisensory perception (see research). In everyday life, we rely on the proper interplay of our different senses to perceive the world. For example, we can selectively combine or segregate the evidence provided by each sense to guide our actions, e.g. when using lip movements to 'hear better' in a noisy environment. Our work seeks to understand when and how the brain selects and combines sensory and other information to guide behavior.
