 Project objective

The proposed scientific project addresses a gap in our current knowledge in neuroscience linking sensory physiology and motor behavior to active perception. Animals disambiguate between motion in the environment and self-movement using corollary discharge, proprioceptive signals and reafferent sensory input. These signals can also be used to influence information acquisition to optimize sensory processing. I plan to explore the links between oculomotor action and perception during proactive exploration of a visual scene to understand how eye movements reshape processing in the early visual system. Because humans are largely ‘visuals animals’ ‘active vision’ is of primary importance to our behavior in our everyday lives. A better knowledge of this phenomenon is relevant to improved understanding of the visual system but will also be relevant to the study of all sensory systems and to a deeper understanding of information processing algorithms, including the value of internal predictive paradigms used throughout the brain. The project has translational potential for the fields of medicine and neural prosthetics, neuromorphic computing, and robotics.

This project combines my previous knowledge in cognitive neuroscience and eye movements, acquired during my 6.5 year stay in the USA with the host laboratory’s expertise in low level synaptic system neuroscience. It therefore ensures both acquisition and transfer of new knowledge and opens opportunities of new collaborations. The MSCA Reintegration Fellowship will furthermore give me the opportunity to fully reintegrate in Europe and significantly widen my competences with the ultimate goal of providing the best career possibilities, enhancing the creative and innovative potential, to maximize the contribution of research to the knowledge-based economy and society.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "PROACTIONPERCEPTION" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
