Welcome to the MRG laboratory
The Mutisensory Research Group (MRG) is part of the Cognition and Brain Centre, Department of Communication and Information Technologies at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra
AIM To understand the neural and cognitive basis of human perception and attention processes in multisensory environments. That is, how our brain organizes, represents, and selects the information that arrives from the different sensory modalities (audition, somatosensation, vision, olfaction, etc).
APPROACH To study multisensory interactions in a wide range of perceptual domains (from speech perception to body representation), using a variety of scientific approaches (from psychophysics to neuroimaging). The questions we address focus on basic as well as on applied problems.

The CBC (which MRG is a part of) organizes a Master in Brain and Cognition.
The MRG shares with other groups of the Cognition and Brain Centre the facilities of the Neuroscience Laboratories. In these laboratories different studies take place related with language, memory and attention and, depending on the type of study, take part on them adult subjects, children or babies.
The techniques available are varied:
Our research projects are funded by public and private sources including:
