Sensory Cue Integration: Beyond Vision

Event Details

Thursday, September 19, 2019
3-4 p.m.
John D. Wiley Conference Center (T216 North Tower), Waisman Center
This talk will review several recent studies in his lab that involve various combinations of vision, touch and proprioception, both for localization of a touch on the hand or arm and for the detection of felt stimulation. We study cue integration and sensory adaptation, often relating human behavior to Bayesian ideal-observer models.
