Faculty members

Joan López-Moliner

I lead the Vision and Control of Action (VISCA) group. In my research I address how people make perceptual and sensorio-motor decisions in complex environments and their capacity for visually control their motor actions. I explore a broad range of behaviour including decisional judgements and goal-directed motor actions by using different methodologies: psychophysics, computational modeling, virtual really, eye and motion tracking and, only sometimes, neuroimage.

Hans Supèr

I am interested in the study of visual cortex processing and Eye movements, you can go to my web page to learn more about my research. My current interest include the application of vergence movements in clinical settings.

Elisabet Tubau

Research interests include sequence learning and decision making under uncertainty. She is also interested in probabilistic reasoning and how people make decisions when the same information is shown in different numeric formats (e.g. probabilities vs frequencies) 

Àngels Colomé

My research interest focus on Numerical cognition: language and numbers; numbers' acquisition; cardinality and ordinality.

Matthias S. Keil

I am interest in neurocomputational modelling based on populations of neurons of different brain processes, including the processing of optic flow.

Cristina de la Malla

I study different aspects of perception and action, including eye movements, interceptive actions and perceptual decision making.

Daniel Linares

I study perception in mental disorders such as schizophrenia. Currently, I have three main interests. 1) Facilitating data collection in clinical environments. To this end, we have created StimuliApp, an application to run psychophysical tests in mobile devices with high precision. 2) Disentangling perceptual from decisional effects in perceptual tasks. To claim that patients with a certain disease experience a perceptual alteration, it is necessary to show that the differences between patients and controls performing a perceptual task are not due to decisional factors. 3) Assess the role of the glutamatergic NMDA receptors in altered perception. To tackle this question we are assessing perception in patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis. 



PhD. Students

Borja Aguado

Borja is conducting research on how people use optic flow to guide behaviors in interceptive timing

Jaume Boned Garau

Pamela Villavicencio

Pamela is looking into whether and if so, how, we make predictions about future states of the world to successfully deal with sensorimotor tasks in dynamic environments.
