Michael J Proulx is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology
at the University of Bath. He leads the Crossmodal Cognition
Laboratory, and is a member of the Cognition, Affective Science and
Technology Labs (CASTL) and an affiliate of the CREATE group. Michael
is an investigator on an EPSRC-funded project, DePIC (Design Patterns
for Inclusive Collaboration).
Michael investigates fundamental issues in cognition (attention,
perception, learning and memory) through the study of multiple sensory
modalities. He takes a converging methods approach to best understand
the psychological and neural underpinnings of cognition in humans, the
impact of visual impairment, and, with interdisciplinary collaborative
comparative studies, in zebrafish, bees, and non-human primates. He
also collaborates extensively with electronic engineers and computer
scientists to develop applications of his basic research.
