OUR MISSION

How do our senses work together? Our eyes and ears cooperate to help us understand our environment. We frequently perceive visual and auditory stimuli as being bound together if they seem likely to have arisen from a common source. That's why we tend not to notice that the speakers on TV sets or in movie theatres are located beside, and not behind, the screen. Research in my laboratory is devoted to investigating the question of how the brain coordinates the information arising from the ears and eyes. Our findings challenge the historical view of the brain's sensory processing as being automatic, autonomous, and immune from outside influence.

THE BRAIN AND SPACE
What Copernicus and your brain have in common.

NEURAL CODES
Does your brain think in digital or analog?

SEEING EARS AND HEARING EYES
How your brain combines what you see with what you hear.

BRAIN STIMULATION AND AUDITORY PROSTHESES
