Cognitive Issues

When medical simulations engage humans in the loop,  cognitive aspects become indispensable.  This is particularly important in all forms of interactive visualization applications which are focused on intuitively interacting with and exploring data from diverse sources including experiments, observations and simulations, using the high bandwidth of our visual perceptual channel as well as other sensory modalities including touch and sound. In this research thrust we will investigate fundamental aspects of the human sensory-motor system to gain deeper insights into how we perceive information.
