Why do we make errors in perception, in memory, and in our actions? Variability and uncertainty are fundamental aspects of human behaviour, which worsen with advancing age or neurological disease. In the lab we measure these factors using visual psychophysics and memory tasks, eye tracking, limb motion-tracking and force feedback. Then, using mathematical models and computer simulations, we develop and test hypotheses about the underlying brain mechanisms.
