We work on Active Vision and Cognition at the Department of Psychology of the Humboldt University at Berlin. To assess the architecture and plasticity of processes in active vision and cognition, we use a broad range of methods including eye tracking, motion tracking, psychophysics, computational modeling, EEG, studies of clinical populations, and, most recently, robotics. Our research builds on the premise that any deep understanding of perception and cognition requires studying their key processes in observers that actively explore and manipulate their environment.

We are part of the DFG-funded Cluster of Excellence Science of Intelligence and associated with the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, and the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin.

If you would like to get involved in our research, be it as a participant in our studies, or as a student at any level of your career (BA, MA, PhD, or postdoc), there are ways to join us.

We are also a happy member of the PsychToolbox community. If you are using it, and would like to contribute to future developments, consider becoming a member, too.
