The role of non-visual cues in regulating perception and skilled movement (2019–2022)

Abstract:
This Project aims to investigate the impact of non-visual sensory information on what we see and how we move.The Project expects to improve our understanding of how information from our senses is combined, something which has implications for how well training in a sensorially impoverished virtual environment translates to the equivalent real-world task. Expected outcomes include methods for specifying the optimal design of simulators intended to prepare trainees for a specific task. This will benefit many areas of workforce training by improving the design and optimising the cost of simulator technologies across a wide range of medical, military and industrial applications at a time when their use is becoming evermore widespread.
