Seminar #16: Sensory Delays and the Experience of Simultaneity

Posted in Seminars by Tom Froese on April 17, 2007

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.

If you have time, you are welcome to look at my submitted paper to ECAL:
