Research at The MARCS Institute
Research Program Leader: Professor André van Schaik
We conduct neurophysiological and psychophysical investigations and use computational and electronic modelling to reverse engineer the brain.
Research Program Leader: Professor Simeon Simoff
We explore the believability of the behaviour of virtual agents in cyber-physical worlds; investigate cyber-physical interfaces and develop the means to achieve natural interaction between the virtual and physical worlds populated by humans and virtual/robotic agent.
Research Program Leader: Professor Chris Davis
The multisensory processing of objects and actions underpins our sense of being in a stable, interpretable world; we study this processing at the signal, brain and behavioural levels.
Research Program Leader: Professor Kate Stevens
Using behavioural and neuroscience approaches, we investigate the temporal dynamics in individual and group performance, perception, and creation of music and dance.
Research Program Leader: Professor Denis Burnham
We conduct research within and between languages, with infants, children and adults focussing on speech perception, speech production, and related skills such as literacy.
