Interaction of Senses in Areas of Common Meaning to Yield Purposeful Behavior
The Multi-Sensory Integration Group at the University of Rochester includes faculty, students, and laboratories that are bound by a common interest in how the different senses interact in areas of common meaning (e.g. space, communication) to yield purposeful behavior.
The Group is centered in the Department of Neuroscience, while including close ties with others (Biomedical Engineering, Neurology, and Brain & Cognitive Sciences). Research and activities are highly collaborative, interactive, and inter-disciplinary. These attributes are further supported by interactions with other interest groups as well as the Center for Visual Science (CVS). The Group provides a dynamic and engaging environment for research and training in an exciting and growing area of systems neuroscience.
