Perception in Action Research Centre

The Perception in Action Research Centre (PARC) is a Research Centre of the Faculty of Human Sciences at Macquarie University, bridging the Departments of Cognitive Science and Psychology. PARC is headed by Co-Directors Associate Professors  Anina Rich and Matthew Finkbeiner (Acting Co-Director Dr Kim Curby).

The goal of our research is to explore the way that humans perceive and interact successfully in their environment. We use multiple techniques to examine the neural and cognitive mechanisms that allow us to perceive and process the world, make decisions, and select appropriate actions.

Members of the Perception in Action Research Centre

The Perception in Action Research Centre has members from both the Department of Cognitive Science and the Department of Psychology. It encompasses the Department of Cognitive Science' Perception in Action research group, and has links with the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD).
