Welcome to the PaCo Lab
Our research investigates the psychology of understanding the visual world, and in particular how human movement forms a rich source of information about the intentions, affect and identity of an individual. Using behavioral studies, coupled with quantitative measurements of human movement, we investigate how our visual understanding is driven by specific movement properties. Using brain-imaging experiments we examine the different brain regions involved in the processing of human movement. In addition to this basic research we have examined the application domains of humanoid robotics, computer animation, surveillance, athletics and artistic expression in music and dance.
