New Ideas in Hearing & Seeing

The Laboratoire des Systèmes Perceptifs (LSP) is organising a workshop on New Ideas in Hearing & Seeing: Cross-modal Processing (from Physiology to Behaviour). We will present new research on trimodal processing involving vision, audition, and touch. The workshop will take place on October 18-19 at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. Workshop programme

Multisensory decisions: The test of a race model, its logic, and power

The use of separate multisensory signals is often beneficial. A prominent example is the speed-up of responses to two redundant signals relative to the components, which is known as the redundant signals effect (RSE). A convenient explanation for the effect is statistical facilitation, which is inherent in the basic architecture of race models (Raab, 1962, … Read more

Building a Boolean framework of multisensory decision making

Great News! The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) will fund our research on multisensory decision making for three years. With the project Building a Boolean framework of multisensory decision making, we will investigate how humans use and combine signals from different sensory modalities like vision, audition, and touch in order to interact with … Read more
