Welcome to the website of Robert Volcic’s lab at New York University Abu Dhabi.
Our lab studies the mechanisms underlying multisensory perception and motor behavior to understand how sensory information is used to guide our actions and how our interactions with the surrounding environment shape our perception. The lab uses a wide range of methodologies, including psychophysics, behavioral techniques, movement tracking, and computational modeling.
“We stand in the visual world not only with our eyes but also with our hands, feet, and shoulders. It is for just this reason that anyone who wants to see correctly must first be able to manipulate correctly. The path to vision by way of behavior is thus no detour at all.” — Ivo Köhler
