Perception with New Sensory Signals

Project description

Learning new senses

From birth, we are like little scientists – using all our senses to learn about our surroundings. The question arises whether we could learn to use new technologies like wearables and electronic devices to 'see' in similar, intuitive ways. The EU-funded NewSense project will test the possibility of enriching human experience and perceptual abilities with new signals. Using virtual reality training , neuroimaging and computational modelling, the project asks to what extent new perceptual skills can become similar to typical perception. The information gained is expected to lead to breakthrough discoveries about the mechanisms that guide human perception.
