Neuroscience Research Group

Vision and Action

The Vision and Action Research Group (Patric Bach, Mike Tucker, Ed Symes and Giovanni Ottoboni) investigates the relations between the visual and motor systems, in programs funded by the ESRC and EPSRC. Patric Bach, the most recent appointment to this group, extends this work into the social domain, investigating the influence of action on our perceptions of other people. The work of this group has made a significant contribution to the developing field of embodied cognition and has clear implications for developments in intelligent robotics.
