Cross-adaptation of visual and auditory motion and psychophysical receptive fields for multisensory motion

This project will build on recent work in our lab using a genetic algorithm (GA) to determine spatiotemporal receptive fields for translating visual motion. Pilot work shows the the more...

Integration of visual and tactile information

Touch and vision often work together in our perception of objects around us. This project will examine orientation and spatial frequency tuning in touch and vision and study how the more...

Visual speed perception during active and passive self-motion

This project will study how rotation of an observer affects factors such as speed perception and allocation of attention. It will compare passive rotation on a motion platform with more...

Modulation of attention and perception during action

The project examines how active motion of an observer modulates perception. The project will study walking observers, and continuously measure their visual performance to examine ho more...

Dynamic re-weighting of multisensory cues

The Bayesian Maximum Likelihood model provides a good description of how sensory information is combined. This project will use a new continuous-measurement technique to measure sen more...

Discontinuous Discrete Methods for Solving the Multi-phase Hydro-mechanical Behaviour of Partially-saturated Soils

The goal of the project is to develop robust finite-element type solvers of the equations describing the multi-phase hydro-mechanical behaviour of partially saturated soils, hence a more...
