How visual action shapes active vision

Project description

Scrutinizing visual actions to understand perception

Visual actions are essential for your ability to see: You glance quickly at your watch to check the time, or turn around when you hear your name. The EU-funded VIS-Á-VIS project will investigate the distinct kinematic rules that visual actions obey as they directly govern the input to the visual system. The project will form an interdisciplinary team and apply innovative technology, tools and experimental protocols to study how the active visual system learns and applies the relation between visual actions and their sensory consequences to establish core perceptual processes such as perceptual omission, object continuity and sense of agency. It will uncover how properties of visual actions are tightly weaved into the processes of visual perception.
