About us

The Mutisensory Research Group (MRG) is part of the Center for Brain and Cognition, Department of Information and Communication 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).
