The vision team of the Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception has research interests in all aspects of visual perception. Its expertise covers visual attention, visual awareness and perceptual decisions, sensorimotor coupling, 3D perception, and the interaction of vision with the other senses. It relies on experimental methods issued from psychophysics, neuroimagery, patient studies, and modelling.
