Welcome to SYMON LAB
The Centre exists to promote interdisciplinary research into the sensory and motor systems of the human brain. Research takes place in both naturalistic and constrained settings, with synthesized environments (virtual reality) to examine the roles of different sensory cues in integrated perception and action. Studies of normal and special populations, including neurological patients with damage to the brain or the peripheral nervous system, contribute to understanding the underlying neural representations of the static and dynamic properties of the environment and the effect or system that allow people to perceive and act effectively on objects.
The Centre also provides short courses for graduates in academia and industry.
