EP5: DFG Research Unit: Active Perception

DFG Research Unit: Active Perception

What we see not only influences our actions, but our actions also control our vision. The Research Unit "Active Perception" intends to study this perception-cognition-action loop by combining psychological, neuroscientific and mathematical perspectives: What role does memory play in the processing of visual stimuli? How is our attention dynamically directed to stimuli? To study questions like these, the group will use psychological behavioural experiments, neurocognitive methods such as electroencephalography (EEG) to measure brain activity, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to image active areas of the brain and methods of mathematical modelling.
