We work on Active Vision and Cognition at the Department of Psychology of the Humboldt University at Berlin. We are also associated with the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, and the Einstein Center for Neurosciences 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.
