Human Psychophysics Lab

Our research in human visual psychophysics addresses several general questions: How does the human sensory system manage to process single physical stimuli and unite multiple ones? Which processes control decisions based on such stimuli? What is the role of cortical feedback, and in particular, how does it differ between central and peripheral visual field? To answer these questions, human sensory behavioral experiments are used together with computational theories and models to infer the underlying neural mechanisms.

We can create binocular stimuli using shutter goggles or a dual-monitor dichoptic display. Using eye trackers we can record gaze location, as well as generate gaze-contingent stimuli. More specialized setups are also available, including a driving simulator, full-field panoramic stimulus display, and 6 degree of freedom motion simulator platform.
