Multisensory Communication Lab
It is essential to appropriately read emotions from the faces and voices of others for smooth interpersonal communication. We study how emotional perception is formed based on culture and personal experiences.
How do we understand languages? We apply eye-tracking and other methods during reading and talking to explore how our minds work when we understand language.
We multimodally perceive information about our surroundings, including others. We study how the senses are integrated and interact in the brain.
Based on psychological experiments, we propose techniques to improve communication through sound between people and between humans and machines. For example, we study warning tones that guide users to take appropriate actions and decisions without panicking.
