Prädiktive Wahrnehmungsprozesse: multisensorische Konsequenzen eigener Handlungen

Geplante Forschung

Projekt A3 kombiniert psychophysiologische Experimente und MRT Bildgebung um Prädiktionsprozesse multisensorischer Handlungskonsequenzen besser zu verstehen. Der Fokus liegt auf den differentiellen Effekten der Verarbeitung von Handlungsfeedback und Handlungsergebnissen. Die Untersuchungen fokussieren dabei auf 1) die Verarbeitung von kontinuierlichem Handlungsfeedback im Vergleich zu diskreten Handlungsergebnissen, 2) individuelle Unterschiede in multisensorischen Kompensationsprozessen und 3) Anpassungsprozesse in Kontext wiederholter Verzögerungen. Unsere Forschung versucht die Lücke zwischen multisensorischer Verarbeitung, handlungsbezogenen Prädiktionsprozessen und modalitätsübergreifenden Anpassungsprozessen zu füllen, um die Mechanismen der Handlungswahrnehmung unter natürlichen Bedingungen zu verstehen.

Laufende Forschung

Das Ziel dieses Projektes ist die Untersuchung der Effekte prädiktiver Mechanismen auf die Wahrnehmung multisensorischer Konsequenzen eigener Handlungen. Die Untersuchungen fokussieren dabei auf die folgenden drei Aspekte: 1) Die supramodalen, im Vergleich zu unimodalen, Effekte von Handlungs-Feedback-Vergleichsprozessen, 2) die neuralen Korrelate supramodaler prädiktiver Mechanismen und ihrer Konsequenzen und 3) die Untersuchung von prädiktiven Mechanismen bei der Werkzeugbenutzung und der Wahrnehmung damit verbundener multisensorischer Konsequenzen.
