Abstract
How does the world get into our head? Is what we perceive really true? What happens in our brain when we see, hear, smell, or touch? How do we find our way in the world? Research groups at the MAX PLANCK INSTITUTE FOR BIOLOGICAL CYBERNETICS in Tübingen are using so-called “psychophysical investigation methods” to answer these questions. This means that sensory impressions of test subjects are manipulated and their perceptual reactions are studied. Colleagues working with HEINRICH H. BÜLTHOFF in the PSYCHOPHYSICS DEPARTMENT are attempting first and foremost to trace the principles of perception and the co-ordination of movement in space.
