Recent Engagement

MeetAI and NeurotechX meetup

Warrick Roseboom appeared as part of the discussion panel at the MeetAI London and NeurotechX meetup on January 18th.

Hallucination Machines

Recent work led by Keisuke Suzuki on simulating experiences of visual hallucination in virtual reality has received considerable media attention with coverage in prominent publications including The Times and El Pais. See here for more.

BSA SciScreen 2017

Warrick Roseboom spoke as part of the British Science Association SciScreen event on the theme of ‘Time’.

Time in Tokyo 2016        

Warrick Roseboom and Keisuke Suzuki recently organised the successful Time in Tokyo – International Symposium on Time Perception and Experience. This meeting aimed to bring together researchers from across the world to discuss philosophical, human behavioural, neuroimaging, clinical, and artificial systems approaches to understanding time perception and experience.

In Touch with Reality

Members of the Time Perception Group contributed to the interactive activities presented at the In Touch with Reality event, brilliantly organised by David Schwartzman as part of the Wellcome Collection’s States of Mind exhibition.

Previous Group members

 

Jacopo Barone: Erasmus+ Intern, University of Bologna, 2016. Jacopo’s project focused on investigating the role of perceptual decision making in judgements of multisensory relative timing.

Acer Chang: PhD student to 2016. Acer worked on a project investigating the neurophysiological correlates of temporal prediction.

Annabelle Deane: UG Research Intern, University of Sussex, 2016.

Gorkem Er: Cognitive Neuroscience MSc, University of Sussex 2016. Gorkem’s project investigated how multisensory relative timing is represented in the human brain using a sensory adaptation paradigm.

Michaela Klimova: Research Assistant, 2016-2017. Michaela worked on a variety of things including the neurophysiological correlates of temporal prediction and the role of perceptual grouping in temporal ventriloquism.

Isabel Ortigosa: MSc student. Isabel worked on the relation between multisensory synchrony and integration using psychophysical and modelling approaches.

Darren Rhodes: Post-doctoral researcher 2016-2017. Darren’s work focused primarily on using Bayesian models to describe the influence of recent experience on subsequent temporal perception.

Francesca Simonelli: Erasmus+ Intern, University of Padua, 2016.  Francesca’s work focused primarily on an investigation of the influence of interoception on time perception.
