Welcome to PCL


Our lab is interested in various aspects of human perception and cognition. We investigate how the brain analyzes and interprets complex auditory and visual stimuli that our senses extract from the surrounding environment. In our research, we use behavioral experiments, computational modeling, and neural imaging. The basic science that we perform has many applications in fields such as hearing aids, auditory displays, human-computer interaction, virtual environments, and machine perception.
