Modelling Multiagent Human Perceptual-Motor Behaviour for Human-AI Interaction

My research is directed towards understanding the lawful dynamics of human perception, action, and cognition. I have expertise in experimental and applied psychology, cognitive science, human-movement science, perception-action, joint-action and social coordination, virtual-reality, complex systems, quantitative and statistical analysis methods, and dynamical modeling, AI and human-AI interaction.

The neural basis of fatigability: too little inhibition is detrimental for performance

Nicole Wenderoth is Professor for Neural Control of Movement. She is currently the director of the Neural Control of Movement laboratory at the department of Health Sciences and Technology, ETH Zürich, and the director of the Future Health Technologies Programme at the Singapore-ETH-Centre. She received her PhD in Movement Physiology and Biomechanics in 2000 from the German Sport University Cologne. In 2001, she joined the Centre for Movement Control and Neuroplasticity at KU Leuven, Belgium, where she applied advanced medical imaging and brain stimulation techniques to study how the human brain acquires and controls complex multi-effector movements. In 2012 she was appointed as Full Professor for Neural Control of Movement in the Department of Health Sciences and Technology at ETH Zürich where she heads a multidisciplinary research group that develops new interventions for modulating neural processing and human behaviour in health and disease. Since 2020, she leads the interdisciplinary Research Programme Future Health Technologies in Singapore.

Nicole Wenderoth’s Neural Control of Movement Lab investigates how the human brain controls behaviour and flexibly adapts to the environment. We use these insights to decode the human mind via non-invasive interfaces and technologies. This allows us to design modern brain stimulation and neurofeedback paradigms for modulating or self-regulating neural function. Even though our work is motivated by fundamental Systems Neuroscience, we actively pursue translation of our findings to applications in the field of neurorehabilitation and learning sciences. The Lab educates ETH Master Students, PhD Students and Post Docs in critical thinking, scientific reasoning and problem solving in addition to providing hands on training in cutting edge neuroscience techniques.

Computational principles underlying the learning of sensorimotor repertoires

Daniel Wolpert read medicine at Cambridge before completing an Oxford Physiology DPhil and a postdoctoral fellowship at MIT. He joined the faculty at the Institute of Neurology, UCL in 1995  and moved to Cambridge University in 2005 where he was Professor of Engineering and a Royal Society Research Professor. In 2018 he joined the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University as Professor of Neuroscience. He  was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (2012) and  has been awarded the  Royal Society Francis Crick Prize Lecture (2005), the Minerva Foundation Golden Brain Award (2010) and the  Royal Society  Ferrier medal (2020). His research interests are computational and experimental approaches to human movement (www.wolpertlab.com).
