About Professor Frans Verstraten

Professor Verstraten is currently interested in the processes underlying perception when observers are moving. The experiments take place in movement simulators and virtual reality environments. His team members measure psychophysical performance as well as neurophysiological performance indicators. Verstraten's group investigates functional as well as it neurobiological foundations of perception with a special interest in motion perception, recalibration & adaptation to fast changing environments, attention & search, binocular vision, binocular rivalry, and eye movements. Other interests include applied cognition and cognitive ergonomics (aka Human Factors), in particular visual problem solving, traffic behaviour, wayfinding, and sensory aspects of marketing communication and consumer behaviour.
