Community based study of health effects of infrasound

A team of investigators at the Woolcock Institute have been funded by the NHMRC to evaluate any health effects associated with wind turbine simulated infrasound. Infrasound is belo more...

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...
