In the High Level Perception Lab we use behavioral and computational methods, including Virtual Reality, to study how we represent complex visual and multimodal information. We are investigating questions such as:

  • How do we encode faces in memory?
  • Why do we perceive coherent motion in random noise?
  • What can virtual reality perception teach us about reality perception?
  • Can people be trained to draw faces accurately from memory?
