The Sensory and Sensorimotor Systems, led by Prof. Dr. Li Zhaoping, has two parts: one in CIN, and the other is the department of Sensory and Sensorimotor Systems in Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. Our research in neuroscience aims to discover and understand how the brain receives and encodes the sensory input (vision, audition, tactile sensation, and olfaction) and processes the information to direct body movements as well as to make cognitive decisions. The research is highly interdisciplinary, and uses theoretical as well as experimental approaches, including human psychophysics and animal behavior, fMRI, electrophysiology and computational modelling to answer questions for example about visual illusions, attention, object recognition and saliency.
