What happens to perception in complex interactions between mind, body, and the real or simulated environments?


Group Overview

What is Emergent-Perception?

In #Emergent-Perception, our goal is cutting-edge research towards discoveries in both human and machine perception and embodied cognition. Our team aims to unravel the intricacies of the human mind as it processes sensory information and responds to the world around us. Through interdisciplinary collaboration in VR/AR/XR, illusions, sound, and touch, we aim to shed light on the new emerging phenomena that can shape our perception of reality.
