Bild Welcome to PADLab

Much of human activity involves one or more of Perception, Action and Decision. The ease with which we undertake everyday activities such as recognising a car, estimating its distance and approach speed, deciding to cross the road and successfully avoiding other pedestrians when crossing, belies the staggering complexity of the computations the brain has to carry out to make this happen. What are these computations and how are they implemented by the tens of billions of cells residing between our ears?

In the Perception, Action and Decision Lab (PADLab) at the University of Manchester, U.K. we use a combination of behavioural and computational modelling approaches to address these questions.
