Seminar #16: Sensory Delays and the Experience of Simultaneity
The first Life and Mind seminar of the summer term will be tomorrow, Wednesday the 18th of April, at 15:00 in room Pev1 1A01 (note room change!). Marieke Rohde will be leading a discussion on:
Sensory Delays and the Experience of Simultaneity
In a recent not yet published empirical study on the adaptation to sensory delays, we set out to explore the minimal conditions for an interesting aftereffect to occur: The readjustment of the experienced simultaneity. The results did not confirm my hypothesis. However, an evolutionary robotics model of the task led me to a much deeper understanding of the effects sensory delays can have in different kinds of sensorimotor loops. From this deeper understanding, I will formulate new hypotheses in order to design a new set of experiments, and I would like to discuss my ideas with you in the life and mind seminars.
