Laboratory of Psychophysics LPSY
In the Laboratory of Psychophysics, we investigate visual
processing in human observers with psychophysical methods,
and mathematical modelling.
Main topics of research are: feature integration, contextual modulation, time course of information processing, and perceptual learning. In clinical studies, deficits of visual information processing are investigated in schizophrenic patients.
This becomes immediately evident when the outer two disks (with respect to the retinotopic frame of reference) are covered. Now, the white dots are perceived retinotopically, in which case they move on a up-down and right- left trajectory, respectively.
