Research Focus

In the Institute of Clinical Neurosciences, studies address vestibular function in health and disease from eye movement recordings to perception using various methods such as psychophysical measurements, eye movement recordings, fMRI and computational modeling. Amgen Scholars can actively participate in carrying out fMRI experiments, conduct small psychophysical projects on their own and, depending on their mathematical and programming skills, help in analyzing the data or even contribute to modeling.

Some project examples:

  • Studying eye movements during natural locomotion using a gaze-driven head camera

  • Investigating navigation in a virtual reality surrounding using head mounted displays

  • Measuring perception of spatial orientation, during and after whole-body rotations on a 2-axis rotating chair

Primary Technique(s): psychophysical measurements, eye movement recordings, fMRI and computational modeling

Model Organism(s): human eye
