The Mutisensory Research Group (MRG) is part of the Cognition and Brain Centre, Department of Communication and Information Technologies at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Our aim is to understand the neural and cognitive bases of human perception and attention in multisensory environments. That is, how our brain organizes, represents, and selects the information that arrives from the different sensory modalities (audition, somatosensation, vision, olfaction, etc).
Our approach spans across a wide range of perceptual domains from speech perception to body representation, using psychophysics and behavioural responses together with neuroimaging (EEG, fMRI, TMS, EyeTracking).
Our research projects are funded by public and private sources including:
- Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (MICINN)
- Departament d' Universitats, Recerca i Societat de la Informació (DURSI)
- European Research Council (ERC).
