Welcome to the Perception and Action Lab ...
If we are to successfully interact with the world around us, our visual
system must do two important things : recognize objects and assist in
the programming and control of actions directed at those objects.
Dr. Marotta's research goals are directed at offering a better
understanding of the functional architecture of visual perception and the
visual control of action. By utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach
that includes neuropsychological patient investigations, fMRI,
traditional cognitive and psychophysical methodologies and advanced 3D
visuomotor paradigms, Dr Marotta's research has helped address one of
the fundamental questions in Cognitive Neuroscience - how sensory
information is transformed into perceptions of the world and useful
