My research is focussed on the spatial encoding of multiple objects and the perception of complex naturalistic environments. More precisely, I am currently investigating which information of a group of objects is processed by the visual system – information about the group’s individual objects or the group’s summary statistical information. To answer this question, I examine the accuracy of motor responses and eye movement behavior.
