By now, it is well established that our senses do not operate independently. Our brains have the fascinating ability to combine information from different senses, creating sensory unity. This integration of sensory input is crucial for optimal perception of and interaction with the world around us. It allows for superior spatial localization, identification, and faster detection of stimuli in the environment. The Multisensory Space Lab focuses on unraveling the mechanisms underlying multisensory spatial perception, the maintenance of sensory unity, and its restoration in the face of sensory impairments. The lab is part of the Department of Experimental Psychology at Utrecht University and is affiliated with the Neuropsychology group and the Attentionlab.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our research, would like to collaborate, or if you are looking for a research internship in the lab.
