Perception & Cognition

The everyday reality that we are used to see is the product of complex processes of our brain. The stimuli are captured by our sense organs and transformed by the brain producing more sophisticated cognitive processes and giving us the ability to understand what surrounds us.

Understanding the behaviour of our brain and its models of perception is not important only for psychologists or social scientists. Computer scientists are increasingly called upon to have knowledge about these issues, especially in these years where new sophisticated technologies require the study of human cognitive models, as for example social robotics.

My research activity mainly concerns the visual sense and related computer vision challenges.
