The Active Perception Laboratory is dedicated to elucidating the functions of motor behavior in visual perception. Research in the laboratory follows an interdisciplinary approach that integrates experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches.

Research in the Active Perception Laboratory has led to multiple findings on the roles of eye movements in the encoding of visual information and the establishment of visual representations. Our work has raised specific hypotheses on the influences of eye movements in visual development, has resulted in the development of new tools for experimental studies in visual neuroscience, and has led to robots directly controlled by models of neural pathways.
