Research focus: The perception of the stability of the external world and the mechanisms used to derive the percepts of self-motion and object-motion from multimodal velocity signals.
The role of retinal and extraretinal signals in programming saccadic eye movements and in saccade amplitude adaptation.
Extracting sensory information for space perception and for motor action in space The coordination and predictive strategies of goal directed eye and hand movements.
Sensorimotor sequence learning
Key words: Behavioral neuroscience, sensorimotor research
