Nils Neupärtl – Short Bio

Nils Neupärtl is a PhD student whose work focuses on perception and decision making. After completing his master degree in Biophysics at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies and the Goethe University in Frankfurt a. M. he joined the lab in November 2016.

Resarch interests

Research in vision science has shown that a great variety of human behaviors and jugdements can be well described by Bayesian model approaches. In my current research I want to evaluate how humans integrate their prior beliefs about environmental statistics with available sensory measurements through different experiments ranging from purely perceptual to interactional decision tasks.
