Experimental Phenomenology of Perception Lab

The main scientific purpose of the EPhPLab group is to: a) Compare and integrate methods, contents, and theoretical paradigms of the Experimental Phenomenology of Perception (EPhP) with methods, contents and paradigms of contemporary Cognitive Sciences; this has involved the creation of an online database of texts (articles, books, manuscripts) constituting the corpus of scientific work as developed by the most active scholars of EPhP; b) Develop new research projects; over the last ten years, the group has developed a new approach to the direct perception of contrariety using phenomenological psychophysics; c) Promote and encourage studies involving other researchers and scholars, with special events and activities aimed at demonstrating the interaction between the EPhP and the psychology of art, the psychology of language, formal ontologies, all carried out in the multidisciplinary spirit of the cognitive sciences.
