Martin Rolfsis Heisenberg Professor for Experimental Psychology Active Perception and Cognition at HU. For SCIoI, he represents the analytic discipline psychology. His research builds on the premise that any deep understanding of sensation and perception requires studying its key processes in observers that actively explore their environment. He investigates selective processes in active vision. His research combines eye tracking, motion tracking, psychophysics, computational modeling, EEG, and studies of clinical populations.
