The Prism Lab is part of the Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre. We are working on questions of sensory-motor control, motor learning, coordination and motor cognition. The main thrust of our work is to look at the role of predictive processes in the human motor system. This word cloud is from the titles of some of our recent published papers... Topics we are currently working on include, for example, motor learning in tasks involving adaptation to perturbed or displaced visual feedback of the hand position. We are testing the role of learning in motor coordination tasks using functional brain imaging. We are studying the questions of short and longer term timing in motor control - the intermittent corrections of position or the longer term control of movements in time with events in the environment. We also look at more cognitive aspects of sensory-motor interactions, such as visual image discrimination, or prediction of actions. Techniques include motor psychophysics in laboratory..
