The Sensory Lab Magdeburg

We study the psychological and neural mechanisms of perception, mostly related to the way we experience touch and the space that surround us, and how this interaction is used to construct representations of our body and to guide our actions.


Welcome to the Sensory Lab

Our research focuses on how we experience bodily sensations, in particular touch.

We combine a wide range of methods from psychology and cognitive neuroscience, including psychophysics, oculomotor, electro- and magnetoencephalography (EEG, MEG) in healthy adults, children, and patients with focal neurological dysfunction (e.g., neglect).
