Ph.D. student in Psychology (2013-2017) The study of sensory integration has never been more important given the nascence of the consumer VR industry. In my work I try to find out how we process multisensory information, with a view to exploiting this knowledge so that we can inform future developments in technology. Currently I am
In this experiment, you’ll be shown point-light animations of humans doing various actions. Your job will be to guess whether they are male or female.
Gravity links spatial and temporal aspects of the behaviour of objects in our visual environment. Gravity also imposes constraints on moving animals. Our visual system employs knowledge about these constraints in order to detect, perceive and adequately interpret biological motion. Psychophysical experiments show how this is achieved. Size and speed demo This demo simulates an […]
