We are the MSense Lab, a research team located in the Department of Psychology at LMU Munich, Munich, Germany. Our team comprises individuals from diverse backgrounds, both international and interdisciplinary. We share a common curiosity about how the brain processes information from multiple senses, how attention plays a role in perception and action, and how we use computational models to better understand these processes.
Our research involves investigating how the brain integrates information from different sensory modalities, such as touch and vision. We are interested in how multisensory contexts affect our search performance, and how we learn probabilistic contexts to mitigate distractor interference, as well as how various types of context influence our time perception (details see our research topics and publications).
To answer these questions, we use various techniques, including behavioral experiments, brain imaging, and computational modeling. By combining these methods, we hope to gain a deeper understanding of how the brain processes information from multiple sources and how this impacts our perception.
