The aim of the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics is to understand information processing in the brain. We use experimental, theoretical and computational methods to elucidate the characteristics and implementations of the cascades of plastic and recurrent interactions that transform sensory data into perceptions, memories, appropriate choices of actions, and motor output.
When the Mario Brothers feel dizzy
A joint team of researchers of the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics and the University Hospital Zurich was able to show that the level of motion sickness depends on what your beliefs about the actual motion are. This offers new perspectives on possible therapies.
