Dr Elisa Raffaella Ferrè

Research interests

My research investigates the interaction of signals from different sensory modalities, primarily between vestibular, visual and somatosensory inputs.  Using a range of techniques from neuroscience, neurophysiology and experimental psychology, I have demonstrated that vestibular–multisensory interactions are crucial in several cognitive processes, including spatial representation, decision-making, bodily awareness, motor control, perspective taking, and gravity processing.  

My work is funded by project grants from the UK British Academy, UK Royal Society, Uk Meniere's Society, Japan National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, European Low Gravity Research Association and European Space Agency.

 

Methods
