Abstract
At the Max-Planck-Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen we pursue a behavioral approach to human action and perception that proves especially well suited for studying more complex cognitive functions, such as object recognition and spatial cognition. The recent availability of high-fidelity `Virtual Reality‘ environments enables us to provide observers a level of sensory realism and dynamic sensory feedback that approaches their experiences in the real world. At the same time, we can keep the ultimate control over most stimulus aspects that are required by the rules of psychophysics. In this book, we take a closer look at these developments in spatial cognition research and present results from different experimental studies that we have conducted using this approach.
