Research Interests

Although scientists have invented chess programs that can rival grand-masters, we have yet to design a robot that comes close to matching the dexterity of a 5-year old child. The aim of research in the Cognition and Action Lab is to understand the cognitive and computational processes underlying movement control and learning. Visit the web site to learn how we use virtual reality and other tools to study eye-hand coordination, object manipulation, sensory-motor adaptation, and links between action and perception.
