Touch is a dynamic process: when we explore a surface, sensory input is generated by a number of different sources, including both somatosensory and proprioceptive  inputs. My PhD is part of the EU H2020-ITN ‘’MULTITOUCH’’ (https://multitouch-itn.univ-lille.fr/).  The aim of my project will be to investigate how stimuli from different sensory modalities (vision, audition) are integrated with tactile feedback under conditions of active, dynamic touch. In order to investigate the neural underpinnings of multisensory integration  during haptic exploration,  we will use a combination of psychophysical and electroencephalography (EEG) experiments.  In collaboration with the other MULTITOUCH partner institutions, this knowledge will be then applied to inform the development of next-generation  human-computer interfaces (HCIs), such as multisensory tactile displays, and multisensory virtual reality setups.
