Sensation and perception

Our research examines how we obtain information about the environment through our physical senses and what we do with that information.

We explore questions ranging from fundamental studies of how people perceive, remember, think, feel and communicate to applied studies of cognition and memory in healthy, pathological ageing, and clinical populations.

We investigate how we organise and interpret the information we receive through our senses and how we use it to perceive and interact with the world.

Our researchers are at the forefront of methodological development in psychophysics and its application to research questions in human audition, vision, taste, and touch.
