About the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics

The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen works on the elucidation of cognitive processes using experimental, theoretical and methodological approaches. The Human Perception, Cognition and Action Department under Prof. Dr. Heinrich H. Bülthoff uses traditional psychophysical methods, computer graphics and simulation technology to advance our understanding of perception and cognitive processes in the human brain. About 70 biologists, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists and psychologists are working on perception processes such as object recognition/categorization, sensorimotor integration and spatial cognition. In the CYBERNEUM opened in 2005, computer graphics and virtual realities are used for simulating natural environments to conduct research on human perception and action under controlled test conditions in a closed perception-action loop. Prof. Bülthoff’s department is a major partner in various international and European research projects. www.kyb.mpg.de
