Some additional demo movies related to our research

  • demonstration of scanning and fixational eye movements, which we study in our lab
  • Demonstration of the need for perceptual stability mechanisms in the visual system; a main aspect of our lab’s research is to study these mechanisms
  • Demonstrations of motor and visual neuronal activity in the superior colliculus
  • A demonstration of a powerful experimental technique that we exploit in our lab
