Modulating Human Subjective
In HapLab at the Department of Experimental Psychology at Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU), we investigate human haptic and multisensory perception. We use various behavioral experimental methods such as psychophysics, or movement tracking combined with computational modeling, and partly physiological measures. Our group is particularly interested in:
- Active touch
- Visuo-haptic interactions
- Time perception
- Material perception
- Affective touch
