Welcome to the Brain in Action laboratory website

In the Brain in Action laboratory we investigate how the brain processes and integrates sensory and motor information. In particular how vision and haptics (touch) guide our arm and hand movements for reaching and grasping. We are also interested in understanding the complex interactions of the motor system with cognitive processes such as language, memory and spatial abilities. We use human psychophysics, behavioural measures including hand and eye kinematics, and cerebral blood flow to infer brain function. Our research includes healthy and neurological populations.
