JLportrait_farbeI am head of the Human Perception and Action Lab at the Centre for Tactile Internet of the TU Dresden.

Our research focus is on the cognitive-computational basis of human perception and action, with an emphasis on the mechanisms of how body models are constructed and updated (in particular, in virtual environments) by the brain. We use virtual reality together with state-of-the-art sensors (e.g., data gloves) and interventions (TMS, pharmacology) for experimental manipulation, and look at how these manipulations affect behaviour, brain activity (using fMRI and M/EEG), and subjective experience together. We use computational modelling to gain a mechanistic understanding of these data.
