Time in Brain and Behaviour Laboratory

Research Overview

Our brain needs time to process what our senses tell us. As a result, we are always living in the past: we act and choose on the basis of outdated information. So how is it possible that we can return a tennis serve or drive through fast-moving traffic?

Using psychophysical, behavioral, and neuroimaging techniques, we try to answer questions such as how time is encoded in the brain, and how the brain keeps track of time. We have several projects available for potential Honours and PhD students, so please get in touch to find out more!
